The objectives of this WP are:
collect, analyse and organize data on the performance of food chains into
a) a database of qualitative and quantitative indicators;
b) a set of case studies. The design of the set of data – aiming at covering all performance dimensions (economic, health, environment, social, ethical) – will be based on the performance criteria matrix developed in WP2.

A crucial asset in Glamur methodology is the comparison of specific food items, contemporaneously, in two or more countries. To comparatively assess the various food chain performance, a crucial step in Glamur is the thorough analysis of products belonging to one of the 5 product categories studied by the project (grains, wine, fruits and vegetables, pork, dairy). Each product will be assessed through a ‘farm to fork’ examination in both local and global configurations simultaneously in more than one country, including imported food from non-EU countries.
The final selection of the case studies has been made to cover the biggest possible diversity, defined in a combination of the following criteria: the physical / geographical distance, the governance and organization issues, the kind of resources and technologies employed in the production process, and the role of the territory in defining the identity of the product.
The case studies are thus chosen as pairs of pairs, performed in two countries (for ex. wheat in UK and in Italy both for local and global supply chains). This will enable Glamur to identify strengths and weaknesses in performance of any specific analysed product in different contexts.
The second Glamur meeting, held in Riga (Latvia) at the end of September, set the final list of pairs of pairs highlighted by the following table. —> click here to show the table
