Distribution of local food activity in England and Wales: An index of food relocalization

Book or journal references : Regional Studies, vol. 40, pp. 289-301 (2006).

Author(s) : Hein , J. R. and Ilberyand , B. and Kneafsey , M.

Abstract :

Despite much interest in the relocalization of the food supply chain in England and Wales, it is unclear whether local food systems are more developed in some areas than others. The aim is to identify current areas of local food activity in England and Wales through the application of an Index of Food Relocalization. The Index is developed by using indicators related to the production and marketing of local food products and results suggest a complex geography associated with such activities.
