Food Supply Chain Analytics and Sensing Initiative

Wholesale Market Management

 Wholesale markets (WSM) are a key consolidation point for the food supply chain in China, they provide opportunities to access and monitor the quality and safety of over 70-80% of food products in circulation. Meanwhile, the structural deficiencies at WSM create significant risks for food safety and zoonotic disease transmission. The goal of the WSM research is to enhance WSM’s role in monitoring and regulating food safety and address structural deficiencies and other risk factors at WSM to mitigate food and zoonotic disease risks.  Currently, a pilot study for the development of digital management tools for WSM is ongoing with the support from collaborators in China (ZJU and BBMC).
