Summary

Localisation is often mentioned as the antidote to the negative consequences of globalisation. The paper evaluates the usefullness of the concept in relation to empirical studies of local food systems and proposes a revised understanding of the global-local continuum, which could be of use in developing sustainable organic food systems in a context of globalisation
