The design of global agrifood supply chain networks is complicated by an intrinsic focus on product quality. Investments in network design should not only be aimed at improving logistics performance but also at the preservation of food quality (reduction of product waste) and reduction of environmental load. We will discuss modeling and simulation efforts to use (1) time-dependent product quality information, and (2) food miles (i.e. the total mileage of food components before it reaches the consumer) and CO2 emission data, to improve the design of agrifood networks.
