Nikolaev, Georgii, 2023. Food supply chain resilience to pandemics : a rapid review. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Economics



As a research field, food supply chain resilience to pandemics has recently emerged due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a growing recognition of the value of knowing how resilience to catastrophic events emerges in critical supply chains and how resilience can be promoted. This study aims to further develop the existing understanding of supply chain resilience in the contexts of the food industry and pandemics by carrying out a rapid literature review and assessing the findings against an a priori framework. 30 papers from different regions of the world met the criteria for inclusion. The conceptual framework provided 30 different interventions which were later used for coding the data and summarizing the evidence. This study provides synthesized notions on various enablers and impediments of supply chain resilience, discusses intricate trade-offs between them, and considers optimal strategies for building resilience to pandemics in the future.
