Supermarket aislesMembers of the Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF) Manchester team have recently published a new paper entitled ‘Trends and drivers of end-use energy demand and the implications for managing energy in food supply chains: Synthesising insights from the social sciences’.

The paper appears in the Journal of Sustainable Production and Consumption and is written by Claire Hoolohan, Carly McLachlan and Sarah Mander. The researchers argue that the ‘consumer’ must be considered throughout the supply chain rather than just at the end, and that social science approaches should be applied to understanding energy use in food supply chains and developing strategies to reduce energy demand.
