Western SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Regional Distribution Networks Case Studies
A sustainable food system is dependent on a variety of actors, so University of California-Davis researchers conducted case studies of distribution networks in California to examine the existing relationships between producers and other firms that facilitate a values-based supply chain. This publication addresses the financial, policy and entrepreneurial factors that influence the development of these emerging distribution networks that consequently help support small- and medium-sized producers.
