    schema:description "The organic farming movement continues to be one of the most dynamic influences on contemporary global agriculture. Organic agriculture is recognized as beneficial to the environment and increasingly acts as a focal point for understanding changes in both the food industry and consumer attitudes and behavior. Largely due to the success of local alliances between consumers and producers, the debate surrounding the pros and cons of organic agriculture is now embedded in not only agricultural but also economic and social development policy forums across the world. This book focuses on the contributions that organic farming offers to wider social change. The book considers the role of all those involved in creating an organic sector. By providing a range of quantitative and qualitative analysis of organic 'farm to folk' networks, the book shows how the way organic farming is practiced holds the potential for changes in industry structure -- changes that may well form the basis for the food system in the 21st century. -- From publisher's description."@en ;
