SMEs, Food and Beverages, Sustainable Supply Chain Management


The research aims to identify critical success factors for sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) systems of food and beverages (F&B) SMEs. Firstly the critical success factors were identified using a systematic literature review,  further Structured Equation modeling has been done to analyze whether SSCM. The realistic insights presented in this study have the opportunity to further improve knowledge of the implementation of SSCM practices not only within the boundary of the industry but also to expand them to their supply chains. The aim of this research is to analyze whether SSCM practices are implemented at all stages in F&B SME’s supply chain. The research leads to the supportable supply chain management information by identifying CSF and developing an SSCM model for the sustainable growth of the firm. The research also provides useful insights into the fields that have been explored by existing literature.
