Summary

This chapter suggests some relevant topics for further analysis of organic farming and organic food markets in Italy. The discussion regards different aspects, taking into consideration farmer issues, supply chain issues, consumer issues, policy and trade issues, including farmers’ income, sustainable development and international trade. All these aspects show important implications with organic agriculture. A final section takes into consideration further emerging issues, linked to globalisation and to the need to foster further research activities in support of the diffusion of organic farming not only in Italy, but also in developing countries.
