Abstract

An empirical model was developed to analyse supply chain practice, antecedent cooperative behaviour (trust and commitment), and food quality as a supply chain performance indicator for Australian beef retailers/wholesalers. Based on the results of this analysis, alternative configurations for these supply chains that enhance performance of the businesses concerned are suggested in this paper. Four elements of supply chain practice (information sharing, information quality, strategic supplier partnerships and commitment) have a significant positive correlation with food quality for Australian beef retailers/wholesalers. Only strategic supplier partnerships have a strong positive correlation with food quality, therefore this study focused on this issue.
