Poultry Meat Supply Chain in East Africa: Literature Review and a Proposed Framework for Future Research

Catholic Sumuni


The purpose of this paper is to deliver a structured literature review of poultry meat supply chain (PMSC) in EAC and provide a platform for practitioners and researchers trying to identify the existing state of work, gaps in current research, and future directions. An in-depth analysis was carried out to determine the vital information from the literature. This paper has identified gaps to be explored about PMSC, which may be used by researchers to enrich theory construction, and practitioners may concentrate on establishing the extent and frontiers of the agro-supply chain. This research work is an attempt to make a critical literature review of available literature on agro SCM practices for developing countries. The research articles and other documents related to the PMSC were collected from online databases like Google Scholar, Scopus, and EBSCO for ten years (2010-2020). Findings and conclusion are provided based on the literature reviewed. Finally, the recommendations are provided for the development of the poultry sector in the region and the direction for future research.
