Abstract

Agri-food supply chains (AFSCs) are essential for addressing global food security and promoting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal of reducing hunger. These chains stand out because they deal with perishable goods that have limited shelf life and are subjected to erratic agricultural s...
