– The purpose of this paper is to consider the concept of strategic business resilience in order to postulate innovative mechanisms to drive business performance in the food supply chain.

– The research included a literature review and the development of a resilience model that can be adopted in the food supply chain at both a strategic and an operational level.

– Conflicts of interest exist for organisations that are seeking to strategically and effectively manage the pluralistic nature of internal and external supply chain risks. The model derived in this research can be used in the food supply chain to drive supply chain agility, organisational stability and longevity, and as a result continuous improvement.

– This research is of academic value and of value to policy makers and practitioners in the food supply chain
