Korte ketens in Gelderland

Schans, J.W. van der; Wonderen, D. van


This report provides a picture of the size and distribution of short supply chains for agricultural products in the Province of Gelderland. First we define short food supply chains in the context of the Common Agricultural Policy. Then we look at the size of short food supply chains in Gelderland: which sectors and municipalities are taking the lead? Furthermore, some additional attributes of short food supply chains have been analysed: farm size, whether or not there is a successor for the farm, etc. The relations between multi-functional farming activities and short food supply chains have also been analysed. Lastly, the dynamics of farm sales have been analysed, as an example of a short food supply chain which is relatively well documented.
