Key CSR dimensions for the food chain

Key CSR dimensions for the food chain

British Food Journal 115(1): 30-47

To identify and define the content of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the food chain and provide a framework of key CSR dimensions in the food chain - The qualitative research approach was applied in the study, based on participatory and case study research methodologies. The project draws on three different case food products and their supply chain: rye bread, broiler chicken products and margarine. The content of CSR has been built through participatory workshops, the aim of which was to elicit the ideas of different stakeholder groups - The study identified seven key dimensions of food chain CSR: environment, product safety, corporate nutritional responsibility, occupational welfare, animal health and welfare, local market presence and economic responsibility. - The results provide food- and agri-business companies a better understanding of core CSR issues and their relevance in complex chains and networks. This may encourage the companies to promote their actives towards more responsible and sustainable direction and offer elements to build sustainable business cases. In addition, the results may indicate a change towards a wider understanding of what is meant by social responsibility.
