Matching supply with demand
Consolidating local food production and refocusing local food practices is achieved by networking between producers and consumers to match supply with demand. Developing local networks and practices has led to innovation. Along with sales at farms and farmers’ markets, it’s also important these days to operate online sales, collective procurement and distribution of local products to supermarkets. There are now short supply chains operated by professional organisations that no longer necessitate face-to-face contact between producer and consumer. LOCALEAT has drawn up a series of information sheets with details of solutions that have been successful across Europe.
