Food companies need to manage and prepare for the changing demographics of US agriculture. Young producers are likewise navigating the implications of a US farm transition and developing enterprise models for the long-term. Can companies make their supply chains foster the future of agriculture instead of the incumbent state? Can corporate supply chains be viable for a new generation of producers?
The purpose of this research project was to explore opportunities for young and BIPOC farmers to get involved in large supply chains, seeking to understand how fostering these opportunities can create a more accessible, equitable food system.
