This study is demonstrated Reverse Logistics (RL) in Food Processing Industries. Reverse Logistics (RL) is the process of backward flow of moving goods for the purpose of capturing value, proper disposal, remanufacturing and refurbishing activities. Reverse Logistics (RL) is emerging trend in Supply Chain Management to gain more competitive advantage in terms of their value, profitability, sustainability and provide additional advantage in any type of industry. The Reverse Logistics (RL) practices adapted in manufacturing industries to reduce wastage and reuse. Food Processing sector possess high growth for the past ten years. As well as Food Processing industries are going to concern, food loss is high. Carbon emission, environmental degradation and greenhouse gas are some effect of food loss, if they are not properly disposed to environment. By applying the Reverse Logistics Practices in Food Processing Industries will help to manage the future demand as well as save the environment. Here, the model is proposed for Reverse Logistics with the consideration and possible factors which can be applicable in India. In that model, stages of Reverse Logistics (RL), drivers and process are discussed. From that the benefits are pointed out.
