Regoverning Markets: A Place for Small-Scale Producers in Modern Agrifood Chains?
This book offers a contemporary look at what happens when modernisation of food supply chains comes face to face with the livelihoods of rural and poor people. The authors are drawn from a eighteen countries participating in the ‘Re-governing Markets’ programme, which aims to improve our understanding of the way modernization and re-structuring of food supply chains is affecting food production and distribution systems, identify best-practice in involving small-scale producers in supermarket supply chains and the barriers to inclusion which need to be removed.
The Regoverning Markets project focused on the modernisation of agrifood markets in emerging economies, and implications for small-scale producers. The goal was to secure more equitable producer and trade benefits in response to those changes. It was a multi-partner collaborative research programme made up of a consortium of some 20 research organisations and funding agencies.
