Food distribution

 

 

How does your food get into your plate?

 

 

Main course

The way food is distributed in a city reflects largely its relation to the food ecosystem - for example, how a city can diversify its selling points by developing retail entities, markets, cooperatives and other forms of food provision, or how a city can increase its local production while promoting tourism and attractiveness.

For dessert

Exemplary city cases of food distribution elements are:

  • A Municipality Central Market with designated areas for local producers in order to support them and to help consumers choose between local and foreign products, in Vaslui, Romania
  • Super-Halle in Lyon, France
  • Food hubs - the next step in the re-territorialisation of food systems in Pays de Condruses, Belgium
  • Dolmen, the selling point and much more in Amarante, Portugal
  • The power of short food supply chains: shortening distances to reduce uncertainty in the province of Ravenna, Italy
