Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study how to evaluate the suppliers of elderly canteens scientifically and fairly in order to protect the dietary safety of an increasing number of elderly people. Based on the research results of scholars at home and abroad, the study formulates the evaluation index system that should be adopted by the elderly canteens and uses the AHP-entropy combination weighting method to determine the weights of the indicators. It then constructs an evaluation model using the TOPSIS method to comprehensively evaluate the various suppliers in order to select the most suitable partners. The study shows that the most concerned indicator in the selection of suppliers by the elderly canteens is "product quality," while the "reputation" indicator is less concerned. Therefore, the elderly canteens pay more attention to the supplier's "reputation" when choosing suppliers. Additionally, the research results of this paper can also provide reference and a theoretical basis for other elderly canteens' supplier selection.
