Role of Food Hubs in Local Food Marketing
James Matson (au); Martha Sullins (au); Chris Cook (au)
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) has noted that one of the main constraints to the entry and expansion of local foods is the šůžlack of distribution systems for moving local foods into mainstream markets.šůĚ This need has spawned the creation of collaborative supply chains to market these differentiated products. One model is the food hub, defined by USDA as šůža business or organization that actively manages the aggregation, distribution and marketing of source-identified food products, primarily from local and regional producers to strengthen their ability to satisfy wholesale, retail and institutional demand.šůĚ Contents of this report: Food Hubs: Issues and Opportunities; The Business Structure of Food Hubs; Virtual Food Hubs; Varying Functions of Food Hubs; Information Sharing and Reducing Risk; Constraints on Food Hubs; Regulatory Environment for Food Hubs; Roadmap for Food Hub Development. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
