Summary

The following represents a summary of tools applied in a working group (WP5) of the EU‐project SUPURBFOOD (“Towards sustainable modes of urban and peri‐urban food provisioning”, www.supurbfood.eu). Within WP5, three research partners, three SME’s of short food supply chains and one food consultancy from Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK commonly explored logistical strategies that aim to make regional food delivery systems more sustainable while remaining economically viable, including addressing issues of scale.
For more detailed information on the tools applied and also practical examples, this summary might be used alongside the SUPURBFOOD Report (WP5) ‘Short chain delivery of food in urban and peri‐urban areas’ that is available for download at the SUPURBFOOD project website [www.supurbfood.eu].
