Purpose – Given the increasingly turbulent business landscape and unprecedented incidents (e.g., Covid-19), firms must achieve supply chain resilience as a dynamic capability to bounce back from adversities and ensure continuity of operations. This study integrates the three interrelated (knowledge management, risk management culture, and resilience) but often separately discussed concepts to advance the understanding of their intertwined influence on supply chain resilience in the agri-food supply chains.
Design/methodology/approach – The study employs a cross-sectional survey approach where quantitative data is collected from 349 participants from the Australian agri-food supply chains to test the proposed hypotheses.
Findings – Exposure to supply chain risks triggers the deployment of specific knowledge management practices in the agri-food supply chains. Further, the analysis on serial mediation suggests that firms’ knowledge management practices work sequentially (knowledge acquisition, assimilation, application) and develop a risk management culture to achieve supply chain resilience amid supply chain risks.
Practical implications – The findings inform practitioners and policymakers who seek to understand the key mechanisms that facilitate the development of supply chain resilience when facing supply chain risks, particularly in the Australian agri-food supply chains.
Social implications – The growth of the food industry through more resilient food supply chains could ensure sustained food supply and more employment opportunities.
Originality/value – Using dynamic capability theory, we devise a novel empirical model that explicates how knowledge management practices and risk management culture instigate the dynamic capability of supply chain resilience amidst supply chain risks facing agri-food supply chains.
