Global Food Value Chains and Competition Law BRICS Draft Report
Working paper

The research project aims to provide the first in-depth analysis of the regulation, from a competition policy perspective, of the food industry by the BRICS countries, and selected developed countries (European Union, United States). The aim has been to map the structure of the food value chain globally, as well as in the various jurisdictions, focusing on the balance of power between the various actors in the value chain: retailers, farmers, processors and suppliers, traders, agro-industry, consumers, in the current context of technological and societal transformation. The report provides a better understanding of the broader contours of public action in the various segments of global food value chains, in particular when this takes the form of competition law, and the various values that seem to animate public authorities when interfering with the private governance regimes put in place, or more broadly the activity of global food value chains.
