Barriers and Opportunities for Sustainable Food Systems in Northeastern Kansas
Survey responses of producers and institutional buyers in northeastern Kansas (United States) were analyzed to understand barriers and opportunities for sustainable food systems in the region where their emergence has been limited. Producers and buyers identified barriers previously noted regarding mismatches of available quantities and prices. Producersâ€™ enthusiasm to supply locally exceeded buyersâ€™ interest to source locally. Transportation was identified as one of the major concerns by producers, and their responses to choice tasks revealed producersâ€™ preferences to sell locally while pricing their products to secure sales revenue and to cover their logistics expenses at least partially.
