This study explores three cases of food farms in Tuscany that practice sustainable intensification and have developed a whole chain for their products. Looking at both the production and the commercialization, it seeks to reply the following research questions: How are practices configured in food chains adopting sustainable intensification methods? To what extent can these practices be replicated, scaled up, and translated into the broader context where the food chains operate? To what extent are these practices able to balance environment preservation, productivity, and market and income satisfaction?

Abstract

This study explores three cases of food farms in Tuscany that practice sustainable intensification and have developed a whole chain for their products. Looking at both the production and the commercialization, it seeks to reply the following research questions: How are practices configured in food chains adopting sustainable intensification methods? To what extent can these practices be replicated, scaled up, and translated into the broader context where the food chains operate? To what extent are these practices able to balance environment preservation, productivity, and market and income satisfaction?
