Feeding the Market: South American Farmers, Trade and Globalization

J Hellin, S Higman | 2003 | Kumarian Press

The debate about the pros and cons of globalization has become increasingly polarized and yet the voices of the rural poor are seldom heard. This book rises above the fray to examine what is happening at the interface between globalization and producers in the South. The authors illustrate the practical obstacles that farmers face in accessing markets especially with respect to the difficulties of meeting market demands for quality of produce along with quantity and continuity of supply.
