Une filière en recomposition et ses incidences territoriales : L'endive dans la France du Nord


  • Eric Manouvrier


Studies on the Witloof Chicory agribusiness in Northern France have focused on production basins, thereby applying the concept of the local productive system to agriculture. In recent years, the sector has undergone some major upheavals (generalisation of the industrialisation of production methods, implementation of the CMO Fresh Fruit and Vegetables regulations 2200/96, development of new marketing strategies based on non-regional networks, etc.) that have affected the structure of production basins. This has been compounded by regional bodies (regional parks and intermunicipal organisations) attempting to make their mark by labelling Witloof Chicory a regional speciality. The present article investigates the effects of these regional considerations on the Chicory Witloof agribusiness and analyses the importance of the interconnections between ?production basins?, ?regional parks? and ?intermunicipal organisations?.
