Summary

Local food is a tool for reinforcing the vitality of rural regions. In addition to being a
mean for guaranteeing supply security, it is also of interest to environmental, social
and economic sciences. Instead of being a key to extensive economic growth, local
and organic food is seen to represent alternative development possibilities for the
agrifood sector.
