The increase of customers’ needs and wants will increase the demand of product varieties. This encourages a shift from mass production manufacturing strategy to mass customization (MC). MC Implementation in food industry interested to bestudied becauseraw material and production process in food industry has unique characteristics. Increased product variants due to the application of MC will cause problems in production planning and scheduling. This paper aims to develop a conceptual framework that can be used to studyof inte-grated production planning and scheduling for implementation mass customization in food industry. This con-ceptual framework is expected to be used to study, guide, and frame into in this area in the future. As literature review aredefined as aprimarily qualitative analysis,this paper collectedpapers from journals andsorted by topic and its method of use. The trend of diversification and customization of products require production facili-ties that can produce multi-product. In addition, the production facilities must be able to respond to fluctuations in customers’ demand. Model of integrated production planning and scheduling problem is difficult to solve, especially in the food industry has a distinct characteristic with different production constraints from other manufacturing industries. Character of scheduling problem in food industry include the character in finished product, resources, constrains, and criteria. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a model of integrated MC production planning and scheduling to handle an increase in variation of products.
