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).
