Are Short Food Supply Chains More Environmentally Sustainable than Long Chains? A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the Eco-Efficiency of Food Chains in Selected EU Countries

Stakeholder type: Industry & Retail, Policy maker, Technology provider

Short description: Improving the eco-efficiency of food systems is one of the major global challenges faced by the modern world. Short food supply chains (SFSCs) are commonly regarded to be less harmful to the environment, among various reasons, due to their organizational distribution and thus the shortened physical distance between primary producers and final consumers. In this paper, we empirically test this hypothesis, by assessing and comparing the environmental impacts of short and long food supply chains.

Box-scheme as alternative food network - the economic integration between consumers and producers

Stakeholder type: Consumer, Farmer & Cooperative, Policy maker
Year: 2020
Author(s): Ronaldo Tavares de Souza
From SMARTCHAIN: No
Short description: As a growing option for small farmers, alternative food networks (AFN) have attracted the attention of researchers around the world. Nevertheless, not much focus is given to box-schemes as a format itself. The nomenclature is often associated with community-supported agriculture (CSA) and solidarity purchase groups (SPG), but many companies have reduced geographic and informational distances without demanding such a narrow relationship between collaborators. The aim of this article is to analyze the relationship between companies and their customers.

RAGIONANDO DI SVILUPPO LOCALE: UNA LETTURA "NUOVA" DI TEMATICHE "ANTICHE"

Stakeholder type: Industry & Retail, Policy maker, Technology provider
Year: 2020
Author(s): Francesco Contò, Mariantonietta Fiore
From SMARTCHAIN: No
Short description: Il presente manuale è una raccolta collettanea di contributi che presentano una nuova chiave di lettura dello sviluppo locale, declinando in prospettiva scientifico-divulgativa “nuove” teorie e tematiche classiche che hanno costituito da sempre lo schema di ciò che normalmente viene identificato sviluppo locale. Vi è, quindi, una multiformità di tematiche che potrebbero, a primo impatto, apparire eterogenee e distanti dagli obiettivi di sviluppo: come il tema della salute e della sanità. Il Covid-19 ha confermato, però, che immaginare oggi uno sviluppo locale a prescindere dalle tematiche sanitarie di un territorio rappresenta sicuramente un’assurdità. Ma nelle vecchie teorie dello sviluppo locale questa tematica non è riscontrabile. Questa declinazione dello sviluppo locale è inserita all’interno della nuova vision della cosiddetta “Economia di Francesco” che è il chiaro riferimento all’evoluzione dell’economia civile di A. Genovesi arricchita dalle suggestioni francescane e benedettine compendiate nella “Laudato Sii” di San Francesco e nella “Regola” di San Benedetto. L’occasione di questo manuale è data dalla presentazione degli atti del progetto SKIN (Short supply chain Knowledge and Innovation Network, finanziato nell’ambito del programma Horizon 2020) che ha avuto come Lead Partner l’Università di Foggia (Dipartimento di Economia) e si è appena concluso dando alla luce un’importante rete tematica europea sulla filiera corta.

Short description: The agri-food industry is of particular strategic interest in Europe, being essential for rural development as it provides jobs and incomes in many remote regions. However, a more sustainable and competitive European agri-food industry is urgently needed, addressing its impacts on the environment, health and climate. A major transformation of the whole sector is required to respond to these challenges, with important changes in both production and consumption of agricultural products.
