Sustainable supply chain is getting more consideration due to business interest in the corporate sectors. Attention in supply chain management has progressively amplified since the 1980s when firms saw the benefits of mutual relationships within and beyond their own organization. This is why, researchers are trying hard to develop new theory or model which might help the corporate. This kind of reflection can be seen by the number of papers published and in particular by journal. The objectives of this paper are twofold. First, it offers a literature review on sustainable supply chain management taking papers published since 1990 to till date into account. Second, it offers a conceptual sustainable supply chain process model in light of triple bottom line theory. The model has been developed by taking in-depth interview from leading poultry entrepreneurs. The paper focused triple bottom line of sustainability (economic, social and environmental) along with supply chain management in the root of poultry industry of Bangladesh. Future PhD research in this area is also highlighted in this study.
