Abstract

El presente artículo es una síntesis de nueve artículos distintos publicados en el boletín Development Policy Review y presentados en el Taller Internacional "Concentración en los segmentos de procesamiento y de comercio minorista del sistema agroalimentario en América Latina y sus efectos en la pobreza rural", realizado en Santiago, Chile, en noviembre de 2000. Los nueve artículos analizan la situación de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Costa Rica y México, así como los espacios mayores del Tratado de Libre Comercio de Norteamérica y el MERCOSUR ampliado. Se centran en el surgimiento de los supermercados y de los fabricantes de alimentos a gran escala durante la década de los noventa hasta la actualidad, e ilustran los efectos de su crecimiento en los sectores de productos lácteos y de la fruta y verduras frescas (FVF). El artículo de síntesis analiza: (i) las definiciones de tipo de comercio detallista; (ii) los patrones y determinantes de la expansión de los supermercados; (iii) el impacto en los sistemas agroalimentarios, en general, y en particular para los sistemas lácteos y FVF; y (iv) conclusiones e implicancias para las estrategias de los programas y políticas de desarrollo.
