Agro-food chains and networks are increasingly important to producers in developing countries, where they become integrated into geographically dispersed supply networks linking producers, traders and processors from the South with retailers and consumers in urban centres and in the North. This volume combines theoretical insights with numerous business case examples to provide a better understanding of the opportunities and constraints that supply-chain integration can offer for stimulating rural development.
