This paper focuses on the fresh product supply chain consisting of two competing suppliers and one single retailer. The model accounts for product competition between the two kinds of products provided by two suppliers, as well as for freshness competition between them. We use a game-theoretic model to examine the RS leadership structure. Our results suggest that to be more successful and reap higher profits suppliers should pursue more substitute products with higher freshness and quantity efficient.
