A special issue EVOLUTIONS IN THE MIDDLE: TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON VALUES-BASED FOOD CHAINS is now published.
In HealthyGrowth, eighteen mid-scale and four regional organic value chains are investigated in order to learn how they are able to combine values and increasing volumes.
A sustainable growth in the organic market depends on the ability to combine increasing volumes with measures that safeguard integrity and consumer trust based on organic values and principles.
The project is funded by the ERA-net CORE Organic II by national funds to each partner.
CORE Organc II is a collaboration between 21 countries on initiating transnational research projects in the area of organic food and farming.
