the market for local products


1.1 Definition and presentation

Local products refer to food products considered to be an integral part of the national or regional gastronomy, with a traditional and local component.

The market for local products is characterized by a variety of products (e.g. dairy products, meat, fruit and vegetables) and a large number of highly competitive players (e.g. private labels, agri-food giants, local producers, innovative SMEs).

The challenge for operators in the local products sector remains that of obtaining recognition from the general public, juggling the economies of scale of industrialization, and dealing with increasingly stringent regulations relating to the local or territorial certification of a product.
