No Through Road: The Limitations of Food Miles

  • Els Wynen
  • David Vanzetti

The focus of this paper is on food miles issues associated with the import of products from developing countries. As the concept of food miles has been an issue in organic agriculture since before the early 1990s, many of the examples quoted in this paper are from that sector. It is argued in this paper that the concept is fundamentally flawed and that its advocates are not only misguided, but may be doing more harm than good. [ADBI WP NO 118].
