“Food systems of the middle” Symposium
2 December 2019
AGRAPOLE – Isara
Our works pay special attention to what we call “food systems of the middle”, inspired by the American notion ”agriculture of the middle” referring to:
Middle-size farms: the interface between commodities market and local services and local products market, corresponding to the reality of the diversified agriculture in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes,
Local distribution network, between direct sales, short distribution channels, regional sectors and companies,
Product differentiation strategies, based on by technological, environmental, territorial, ethical and social qualities and specificities.
