Abstract

With the uncontrollable growth of world population, in some parts of the world, millions of people are at the risk of hunger while in certain countries there is a significant waste of food. This imbalance in the global food supply chain increasingly demands sustainable management to “end hunger,” as envisaged in the sustainable development goals. Considering the importance of food supply chains, the purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of sustainable food supply chain management and to propose an integrated framework. With this objective, the chapter provides an overview of sustainable development and the importance of food supply chain management to address the global food crisis. It also provides an overview of the theoretical background of sustainable food supply chains. The chapter also presents an integrated framework for sustainable food supply chain management by extending prior work on the subject. In every section, carefully selected mini cases are provided to bring in more insights into the points/arguments mentioned therein.
