The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive framework by identifying and analyzing the key factors influencing the reduction of food loss and waste (FLW) in fresh produce supply chains (FPSCs) in developing countries, specifically India. This empirical study has identified eight influencing factors, representing the given context, from the literature (using content analysis) under the purview of management theories (namely, stakeholder theory, capabilities-based theory, and critical success factors theory) as well as data collected through semi-structured interviews from a group of selected experts. Further, Interpretive Structural Modeling (ISM) technique and Matriced’ Impacts Croise’s Multiplication Appliquee an un Classement (MICMAC) analysis are used as an integrated method to analyze the identified factors. Regulatory bodies and food policy along with market infrastructure are the most significant factors and have a high tendency to influence the reduction of FLW in FPSCs; therefore, require utmost consideration. The findings of this study are expected to enable managers and policy makers to uncover and understand the key factors. The insights from the findings will help in formulating policies and making strategic decisions regarding the reduction of FLW in FPSCs which will help in attaining sustainable development goals target on FLW.
