In recent years new rural development architectures are emerging, as the development of alternative food chains shows. In this paper we explore the role of alternative food supply-chains in rising sustainability in both productive systems and rural development and specific attention is given to factors related to the organisational structures and interactions among different food supply chains levels. By developing a battery of indicators able to asses the sustainability performance, we examine through a depth micro- analysis of a case stud, how a specific sustainability concept is progressively embodied into an initiative and how this initiative changes the existing networks. In particular, the study draws the case of Raw Sheep milk cheese production, in a mountainous region of Tuscany.

Abstract

In recent years new rural development architectures are emerging, as the development of alternative food chains shows. In this paper we explore the role of alternative food supply-chains in rising sustainability in both productive systems and rural development and specific attention is given to factors related to the organisational structures and interactions among different food supply chains levels. By developing a battery of indicators able to asses the sustainability performance, we examine through a depth micro- analysis of a case stud, how a specific sustainability concept is progressively embodied into an initiative and how this initiative changes the existing networks. In particular, the study draws the case of Raw Sheep milk cheese production, in a mountainous region of Tuscany.
