Case Study: multidimensional comparison of Local, Mixed and Global fresh organic tomato supply chains in Spain

In the present report, the comparison between a Local, Mixed and Global organic tomato supply chains is presented. The Local supply chain can be described as small size farmers producing a diversity of vegetables that are sold directly to individuals or consumers’ groups.
The Mixed supply chain is characterized by a medium size farmer, producing 5-6 crops that are sold through an organic wholesale cooperative, of which the farmer is a partner. The Local and Mixed farmers almost double the net income of the Global farm, either per unit of labour or land
