Suppliers in agri-food chains are required to comply with an ever-growing set of standards to secure market access. Many standards are ‘voluntary’ and have been developed and overseen by organisations from the private sector, sometimes working with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to promote food safety and quality, good agricultural practice and labour standards.

The project in Brazil, China, and India aims to improve the understanding of the links among energy costs and use, the transformation of food supply chains including analysis of horticulture and dairy supply and technologies, and poverty alleviation to formulate policy pathways towards more optimal energy use.
