Short Food Supply Chains as drivers of sustainable development

Short Food Supply Chains (SFSCs) have established in parallel to conventional food chains, playing a key role in the emerging food networks that are continuously arising as an alternative to the globalized agri-food model. The diversities and particularities of the experiences existing all over the world (box schemes, farmers’ markets, on-farm selling, consumer cooperatives, Internet sales, business cooperatives, Grow Your Own, retailing etc) have attracted a growing interest from academia and policy-makers due to the nature of these  initiatives, as well as for the socioeconomic, territorial and environmental scope.
