Short Food Supply Chains (SFSCs), where local farmers and food producers sell their produce directly to consumers or through a very limited number of intermediaries, are attracting more and more interest for their potential to bring about social, economic and environmental benefits in comparison to conventional long supply chains (e.g. supermarkets).

The following infographic has been produced jointly by the SMARTCHAIN and Strength2Food projects to provide an overview of how and in which context SFSCs can be beneficial from different perspectives.
