Dashboard Illustrates Food Supply Chain Vulnerability

An interactive dashboard tool developed by Purdue University tallies inputs needed for different food industries, provides the share of total cost of upstream inputs and labor, and evaluates the risk of several different food industries based on a diversity score. The meat industry has the worst diversity score, meaning it is the most vulnerable. The dashboards are part of a portfolio of public dashboards created through Purdue’s Center for Food Demand Analysis and Sustainability and designed to inform industry leaders and policymakers about how to protect food supplies.
