CIAS recognized for work on value chains

The Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems and Community Development has recognized CIAS and the Agriculture of the Middle initiative as “influential initiatives” working on value chains over the past ten years. Value chains are strategic alliances between farmers, processors, distributors, retailers and other partners in the food supply chain. These partners work together to deliver high quality, differentiated food to the marketplace and share profits equally. CIAS has researched and developed teaching materials on value chains. CIAS researcher Steve Stevenson contributed to two articles in the value chain issue of JAFSCD; view the abstracts here and here.
