More Than Food Traceability: The Case of Cassava Exporters from Costa Rica

Posted January 9, 2013 | Atlanta, GA

Emmanuel Hess, general manager of the Georgia Tech Trade, Innovation & Productivity Center (GT TIP Center) in San Jose, Costa Rica, authored the Cool Insights column for the November/December 2012 issue of Food Logistics, titled “More Than Food Traceability: The Case of Cassava Exporters from Costa Rica.” 

In the column, Hess discusses GT TIP Center’s methodology for mapping, analyzing, and describing the different processes in a food supply chain, as well as collecting and analyzing critical information.  For their research, the Center examined the case of cassava exporters from Costa Rica.

For the past three years, faculty, staff, and partners of the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute’s IFC have contributed their thoughts on various aspects of the food chain to Food Logistics Magazine under a column called Cool Insights.
