Cet article cherche à identifier et examiner les modes de coordination et de contractualisation mis en place dans les filières agroalimentaires, en fonction des types de production et des contextes économiques. Nous proposons une revue de littérature internationale, centrée sur les contrats qui lient les agriculteurs aux entreprises de l’aval des filières, qui examine comment le développement de contrats ou de formes d’organisation alternatives au marché spot répondent à des objectifs de performance, d’assurance contre les risques et d’exercice de pouvoir/contrepouvoir de marché. Nous étudions le positionnement des organisations de producteurs et des coopératives qui sont un échelon-clé dans les filières, à la fois pour coordonner les agriculteurs entre eux (coordination horizontale) et pour coordonner l’amont et l’aval de la filière en incluant les entreprises de transformation et de distribution (coordination verticale).
