Reducing food waste is challenging, especially when supply chains (SCs) have multiple decision-makers. One well-known approach that grocery retailers use to deal with waste is requiring manufacturers to only send products with a long remaining shelf life (“minimum life on receipt”-MLOR). However, it is not clear how this approach affects manufacturers. To evaluate the effectiveness of the MLOR agreement and address this food waste problem in perishable SCs, we study and compare two strategies: (1) collaborating on setting the MLOR level and (2) coordinating the SC via contract mechanisms.
