Objective Programming Approach to Food Supply-Chain Theory
Contemporary food supply chains are generating externalities with high economic and social costs, notably in public health terms through the rise in diet-related non-communicable disease.A decision making model of multi-product multi-stage food supply-chain consisted of single manufacturer and single supplier is proposed in this article. The model is proved to be superior and efficient through application example. Reasonable decisions are suggested by analyzing the solution of dual problem. The decisions could help members of food supply-chain get more profits.
