Abstract

Over the past few years the concept of circular economy has captured considerable attention from researchers and practitioners as a potential solution for social, economic and environmental challenges. But in literature limited attention has been given to explore the circular economy initiatives in agri-food supply chain. This paper aims to address this gap by critically reviewing the existing literature and identify the drivers and barriers for implementing circular economy in Agri Food Supply Chain. The study adopts the systematic literature review approach proposed by Kitchenham (2004). In this study we examined the popularity of the Circular Economy drivers and barriers in Agri Food Supply Chain in accordance with the number of times the drivers and barriers appeared in the research studies which shows that environmental (67%), policy and economy (47%) and financial benefits (43%) are the three top drivers. Whereas institutional (64%), financial (48%) and technological risks (40%) are the top three barriers in implementing circular economy practices in Agri food supply chain. Keywords: Circular economy, barriers, drivers, agri-food supply chain
