The stakeholder’s roles in risk management related to food supply chain recalls: a systematic literature review

Oliveira, Lucas and Silva, Andrea Da and Pereira, Carla Roberta and Chaudhuri, Atanu (2022) 'The stakeholder’s roles in risk management related to food supply chain recalls: a systematic literature review.', International Journal of Logistics Management .


Purpose: Food supply chains (FSCs) are becoming increasingly complex and vulnerable to recall risks due to quality failures. Measures for supply chain risk management can minimize these recall risks. However, this responsibility must be shared by all stakeholders in the chain. This study aims to analyze the roles of different stakeholders in managing risks in the events of food recalls. Design/methodology/approach: A systematic literature review was carried out, and 110 articles were explored to identify risk management actions and to link them to the role of stakeholders involved in FSC recall. Findings: The study found that nine stakeholders were responsible for 25 hazard management actions related to food safety and traceability systems, regulatory and preventive measures, and control and response mechanisms for food recalls in the FSC. Originality/value: This article contributes to the literature by proposing an explanatory map associating risk management actions to different stakeholders in food recall. The actions were grouped according to whether they were prevention actions to avoid a food recall or contention actions to limit the negative economic effects and maintain the health of the population.
