Abstract :

To purchase or authenticate to the full-text of this article, please visit this link: Byline: Huaming Zhou, Qiao Ding, James Otto In China, the supply and distribution of fresh agricultural products (FAP) can significantly impact the people that depend upon them daily. Weaknesses in Chinese FAP supply chains, combined with the increased consumption of these products, have challenged the production, logistics, management and surveillance of FAP. This paper provides an overview of the status of the current Chinese FAP supply chains and compares the primary models of FAP supply chains. Based on the actual Chinese FAP supply chains, this paper examines consumers, producers, information technology, and food miles to analyse the development of Chinese FAP supply chains, and predicts the future direction of local FAP supply chains.
