Summary

This working paper contains a new theoretical approach for analyzing organic supply chains. It is structured at three levels:
- the farm/household level
- the supply chain
- the institutional frame
The theoretical frame explains how the economic mechanism in a competetive market economy creates societal conflicts and concentration of production and capital in relation to farming. The theory also explains how and why organic farming can be viewed as a social counterreaction to these conflicts and processes of power concentration.
