dc.description.abstractThis research develops an integrated framework of long-term agri-food supply chain partnerships and the cooperation and collaboration this requires. It builds on existing frameworks within the economic, managerial and sociological literature, clarifying the conceptual definitions of these constructs and develops these to provide a more comprehensive understanding. The results have wide application and expand the understanding of cohesive and beneficial food supply chains. A multi-disciplinary approach is used, drawing from constructs in transaction cost economics, resource dependence and social exchange theory. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are used to explore the importance of the variables likely to influence cooperation and commitment and how this creates value for all supply chain stakeholders. The main objective of this research is to contribute to the knowledge and understanding of supply chain relationships in the global food system. This will help develop long-term partnerships between the various stakeholders in order to meet the higher product specifications and delivery schedules required by international consumers. It will also enable policy makers to support the multiple stakeholders in food supply chains to create a better and fairer system in the delivery of food choices for all.en
