Food Risks and Type I & II Errors

The global food supply network is becoming increasing vulnerable to food safety and food de-fense risks due to failures in prevention and control measures. We develop the idea of control oriented supply chain security management in the context of global food supply networks. We identify a variety of failure points where security systems can produce Type I (false positive) and Type II (false negative) errors that create disruptions, and explain how the use of ex-ante preven-tion measures can lead to opportunities for continuous reductions in costs and food risks.
