The Food Value Chain: Some Key Economic and Policy Issues

Eight AAEA members present research at 2019 AAEA Annual Meeting

From breweries, to potatoes, to Brexit, what are the latest theoretical and empirical findings in industrial organization and supply chain management?  

In a Lightning session on “Industrial Org. /Supply Chain Management – Lightning Session,” happening at the 2019 AAEA Annual meeting in Atlanta, GA, eight presenters weigh in on a wide variety of topics in 9-10 minutes each.

The moderator for the session, Ian Sheldon from The Ohio State University says, “The breadth of subjects covered in this session, ranging from mergers involving craft brewers, through food waste, food fads and restaurant inspection, to debates over international food standards, reflects a focus of modern food consumers and policymakers that goes well beyond our traditional analysis of the food supply chain, and one that often generates media interest.”
