Specific market and production characteristics of food supply chains are motives for vertical coordination in order to gain competitive advantage. Quality assurance systems will only contribute as a facilitating factor. The actual competitiveness of the food supply chain will be determined by the ability to develop successful partnerships. The implications for food supply chains will be a diversity of partnerships characterized by an enhanced asset specificity and higher exit and entry barriers.
