|Opis:||Food supply is one of the most complex areas in recent decades, given the steady growth of food consumption, especially in rapidly developing countries. Food supply chains are becoming increasingly global, intertwined within a broad network of farmers, producers, distributors, logistics centers, stores, and consumers. Complexity in the food industry entails responsible monitoring of goods traceability, quality checks, adequacy, and timeliness regarding meet the needs of increasingly demanding consumers. Within growing production capacities and satisfaction of food needs on the global level, pollution of the environment with various emissions and waste is an inevitable consequence. In order to fully understand the role and potential of improvements in the food sector, we need to examine systems in a detailed, systematic, and structured way that goes beyond material flows, energy consumption, transport paths, and time limitations. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in evaluating supply chains, especially in the field of air emissions (e.g. CO2), sustainable packaging and waste management. Encouragements were also noticed in buying eco-friendly household appliances and other machinery. However, there is a limited number of studies that cover a comprehensive evaluation of food supply chains from the very beginning – the acquisition of materials through transportation to the manufacturing plant, production processes, distribution network, to the consumer and, finally, through the use and disposal phase or reuse phase. When reviewing the literature on the sustainable food supply, we can detect a comprehensive method for evaluating the supply chain in recent years, called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The method is based on ISO (International Organisation for standardization) standards 14040 and 14044 and is one of the most scientifically and methodologically supported procedures for evaluating environmental impacts throughout the lifecycle of a product or service.
