Traceability in fish supply chain - Evaulating two suppply chain mapping techniques

Ringsberg, Henrik LU and Lumsden, Kent (2009) 21th Annual NOFOMA Conference, 2009 In NOFOMA PROCEEDINGS 2009 p.1-17
Abstract
Purpose of this paper

The paper describes and examines the information flow in three fish supply chains, when the package is treated as an information carrier. Included is an evaluation of two supply chain mapping techniques for examining the interfaces for the achievement of better traceability and by this supply chain and logistic efficiency.



Design/methodology/approach

The research is based on a literature review and a single case study in which two different logistical mapping methods have been used in a new conceptual manner.



Findings

The paper shows that fish supply chains are complex and include interaction problems between authorities and actors in the supply chain.... (More)
Purpose of this paper

The paper describes and examines the information flow in three fish supply chains, when the package is treated as an information carrier. Included is an evaluation of two supply chain mapping techniques for examining the interfaces for the achievement of better traceability and by this supply chain and logistic efficiency.



Design/methodology/approach

The research is based on a literature review and a single case study in which two different logistical mapping methods have been used in a new conceptual manner.



Findings

The paper shows that fish supply chains are complex and include interaction problems between authorities and actors in the supply chain. It identifies the importance of traceability in the fish industry from one government authority’s point of view regarding existing laws and regulations. Finally two supply chain mapping techniques should be used as complements when analysing chilled supply chains for food.



Research limitations/implications

The research emphasises one case study of three supply chains for fresh fish carried out at the Swedish Board of Fisheries. The study shows the authority’s point of view and excludes at present other actors’ perspectives in food supply chains.



Practical implications

The two methods used are efficient ways for assessing and quantifying the potential effect of information visibility and interaction problematic in a fish food supply chain.



What is original/value of paper

The paper provides an extended understanding of interaction problems between the actors in a food supply chain and relevant authorities concerning traceability. The specific value is in the potential to improve the interfaces between authorities and commercial actors. (Less)
