Paper long abstract:

The paper looks at local, artisan food productions and their value chains. It explores a qualitative methodology of analysis developed in order to assess the health of these production chains, identifying their main weakness and strengths in terms of sustainable development.

Specifically, the paper will explore how the methodology was developed for the study of short production chains in marginal rural areas. It presents how its socio-economic indicators were developed and how the data are collected and analyzed in order to fully assess the subjects.

In so doing, the paper contributes to the debate concerning the risk of disappearance of food heritage, considering the future small farms and food enterprises in the current European context of fast marginalization of the rural areas.

The paper stems from the ERC project: DiGe - Ethnobotany of divided generations in the context of centralization.
