Abstract / Description of output

Multi-case study analysis across the food supply chain, including farmers, processors, retailers and non-government organisations (NGOs) is used to understand the impact of constitutional change on Supply Chain Resilience (SCRes). Given the current constitutional uncertainty in the UK surrounding its impending exit from the European Union, local UK food systems are studied. The findings suggest that dynamic capabilities are important as organisations seek to lobby government and reconfigure their businesses to reduce their vulnerability to changes such as potential reductions in government farming subsidies. Extant SCRes is also argued to be a source of protection during this volatile period.
