Short food supply chains (SFSCs) in horticulture products from Spain

S. Sayadi, M.C. García
A short marketing channel (SMS) is a supply chain consisting of a limited number of operators, committed to co-operation, local economic development and socio-economic relations between producers and consumers in the neighboring region. These channels that do not involve large distribution nor the complex conventional wholesale-retail, are emerging as a potential market in organic horticultural products. Thus, the objective of this study was the characterization of short marketing channels of horticultural products in the provinces of Almeria and Granada, located in Andalusia (south of Spain), dealing especially with those that sell organic horticultural products.
