The main objective is to examine the effect of innovation orientation on supply chain disruption recovery and the mediating role of supply chain robustness in the innovation orientation and supply chain disruption recovery relationship with evidence from hospitality establishments in Ghana. Cross-sectional research was used. This survey was quantitative. Convenience sampling was adopted and selected 293 participants. Data gathering relied on a questionnaire. Statistical study using SPSS v26 and SmartPls v4. Data was analyzed descriptively and inferentially. The result reveals that innovation orientation positively influenced SC disruption recovery and robustness. The result shows that SC robustness positively influenced SC disruption recovery and plays a positive role in the relationship between innovation orientation and SC disruption recovery. The study concluded that management should resume regular operations quickly, if a severe security breach occurred, continue operating if a major supply chain security compromise occurred, and quickly resume vital activities after system failure/interruption which can help them embrace research-based developments to handle disruptions immediately, handle crises, and to recover cheaply from disaster.
