…one of those titles you really should have read as a professional operating in the supply chain and associated food industry...it is surprising that no authoritative text already covers the food supply chain. The book is clearly laid out stepping through a series of chapters, each of which is well referenced to allow the reader to explore any particular area more deeply. For anyone wishing to understand the food supply chain, the chapters on livestock systems and crop production are essential. This is a good all round text, that is accessible and genuinely covers all aspects of the food supply chain… and should be considered an essential read by any supply chain professional. Control Magazine (The Institute of Operations Management), Vol 31, Number 4, 2005.
