The  objective  of  this  research  is  to examine the  barriers  to  the  implementation  of sustainable  practices  in  global  food  retail  supply  chains,  as  well  as  potential  solutions. Semi-structured  interviews  were  used  to  collect  data  on  a  case  firm  and  its  first-tier suppliers in the global food retail industry, and the data was qualitatively analysed using thematic analysis. The major obstacles impeding the implementation of sustainability in global food supply chains were discovered to be quite noteworthy. In this context, some suggestions for developing long-term strategies were made. The theoretical and practical implications were discussed.
