Food Policy in the Era of Supermarkets: What’s Different?
This paper examines the role of supermarkets in developing countries from a “food policy” perspective. The entire food system is being affected by supermarkets, from supply chains impacting small farmers, through traditional marketing channels, to opportunities facing consumers. Issues of macroeconomic impact, distribution of benefits by income class and health consequences of behavioural change by consumers in the face of new consumption possibilities are among the themes discussed.
