Food Supply Chain Management: Economic, Social and Environmental Perspectives is very different from parts supply chain management as can be seen from the increasing health, safety and environmental concerns that are increasingly garnering the public’s attention about different food supply chain problems. Food supply chain managers face very different environments. For example, there are very specific regulations from government bodies such as FDA or US Department of Agriculture, commodity subsidy programs, ever-changing trade policies, or increasing trends with intense public interest such as sustainability or bioengineering.

While the popular press has written extensively about certain food supply chain issues, these books focus on health effects, specific supply chain practices (buy local vs. commodity supply chain), agricultural policy impacts, and problems in the modern food supply chain. Food Supply Chain Management  covers the food supply chain comprehensively, and is appropriate for a business student audience and students in agriculture business, natural resources and food science.

'The authors invite inquiry into present economic, humanitarian, political, and practical aspects of supply chain management issues, which are key to understanding the history and development of basic structures that support and influence the current supply chain...Discussion questions at the end of each chapter are insightful, and the supplemental readings and web links guide the reader to supportive materials. This book is an invaluable resource in the conversation about food management and sustainability and the future of the food supply. It can serve as an excellent teaching tool and will appeal to professional learners as well as postsecondary students of agribusiness and food management. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Students, lower-division undergraduate and up, and practitioners.' - T. J. Smyth, Kingsborough Community College-CUNY, CHOICE

'A fascinating examination of the biggest―and most important―supply chain in the world, after all everyone eats. Food safety and low cost, two things much of the developed world takes for granted, are examined as consequences of the rapid industrialization of worldwide food supply chains. Pullman and Wu provide intriguing analysis of the conflicting forces shaping this most critical of supply chains.'-Kenneth K. Boyer, Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University, USA

'This is an excellent book for experienced practitioners as well as students of food supply chain management. The case studies are very lively, cutting edge and illuminating, providing detailed insights into food production and supply chain methods, sure to spark much debate in the classroom.'- Rupert Spies, Senior Lecturer, School of Hotel Administration, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA
