Shortening the Supply Chain

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

The names vary—GAS in Italy, AMAP in France, CSA in the USA, GASAP in Belgium—but the idea is the same: Groups of farmers and citizens who make a pact to support, clean, local, community-driven agricultural systems. Then there are farmers’ markets, in which producers sell directly to customers. The Terra Madre network comes together to discuss alternative distribution models that shorten the supply chain.


  • Eugenio Sapora (Alveare, Italy)
  • Anders Westberg (REKO, Sweden)
  • Boris Akimov (Biocoin, Russia)
  • Marjorie Ramona Sosa Iglesias, Associazione da Mano a Mano and expert in socio-environmental planning (ONG EDEPA) and leader of Slow Food Miranda
  • Gaelle Bigler Member of the steering committee of Urgenci

The Terra Madre thematic Forums are presented by delegates of the network and are open to the public as long as seats are available.

Priority entrance reserved for delegates. Access requires registration on site.
