Community supported agriculture thriving in China

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is one of the best examples of a successful, alternative food distribution system, providing real income to producers and affordable healthy food for consumers. Food continues to be grown in peri-urban areas and trust between producers and consumers is strengthened. And China has not been left behind by this global movement, over 800 CSAs with 100,000 consumers are now contributing to new food systems in more than a dozen cities across the country.
