Call for interest: Exploring the impact of supply chain disruptions on food digital platforms

How are digital platforms reconfiguring food supply chains during extreme disruption? A new research project at the IfM is looking to answer just that.


The project, led by Arunpreet Singh, aims to propose key frameworks and design features to better enable efficient food provision and sustainable management.


Call for interest - company interviews

The project is currently seeking companies who operate in the food digital platform space to conduct in-depth virtual interviews. If you are interested in taking part, please email Arunpreet Singh.


About the research

Emerging digital e-commerce platforms are transforming how food supply chain (FSC) actors behave, operate and procure products and services. Contemporary supply chains, particularly those with international footprints, present considerable challenges in terms of complexity, agility and adaptability to external disruption.


This research looks at the contributions digital platform organisations offer evolving FSCs during extreme disruption with relevance given to the COVID-19 pandemic.
