Supply chain control principles in local food production: a Norwegian case study

Abstract

Based on an analysis of the supply chain of four producers of local specialty foods, we explore how planning and
control principles can be applied to align supply chain capabilities and market requirements. It has been shown that
local food struggles with market access, and that the supply chain is one of the obstacles preventing local food
producers from gaining a solid market position. We identify a number of features of the local food chain, analyse
the obstacles and develop generic designs and control principles for local food producers.
