Abstract

Value chain in agriculture is a current issue affecting from farmers to consumers. It questions important issues as profitability, and even though continuity of certain sectors. Although there has been an evolution along time in the structure and concentration of intermediate and final levels of the value chain between distribution and retail sector, a similar evolution seems not to arrive at the initial level of the chain, the production sector. This produces large imbalances in power and leverage between levels of the value chain that could imply several problems for rural actors. Relatively little attention has been paid to possible market distortions caused by the high level of concentration distribution side of the agrifood system.
