Special issue on supermarkets and global food supply (#journal)

Symposium on the Changing Role of Supermarkets in Global Supply Chains (8 articles)

We all know that supermarkets have a huge effect on what we eat and how it is farmed, produced and transported, and this special issue of Agriculture and Human Values presents eight articles looking at specific aspects of supermarket power. These include consideration of the way supermarkets are driving agricultural restructuring, the action of ombdusmen in limiting supermarket power, the role of private equity, the private food standards that supermarkets impose on suppliers and the connection of food supply chains to dietary ill-health.
