Performance measurement and risk management in intermediary food chain businesses

This research seeks to understand the extent to which performance measurement systems in food supply chains might be incomplete and inadequately balanced, and considering allegations from previous research that controls, rewards and incentives and have a role in shaping performance measurement upstream in supply chains.
