Distribution of direct recall costs along the milk chain
The relation between time and the direct recall costs of one batch of milk was investigated in this study. We developed a Monte Carlo simulation model of a farm-to-consumer supply chain associated with one batch of milk of 150,000 kilograms. The direct recall costs of recalling a batch are less than €100,000 in the first 16 hours after the milk has been collected from the farms, but the costs increase rapidly to more than €140,000. With this study, we showed that a modeling approach can give insight into the relation between recall costs and time, and it can support the development of monitoring schemes at the chain level.
