Abstract

The growing interlinkages between the financial and agrifood sectors have to a large extent shaped the dynamics in the latter, from land ownership to food retail. This article describes the different ways and means, and ever deeper levels of financialization that continue to develop. The dynamics resulting from this financialization of the food supply chain pose serious challenges to the key function of the agrifood sector—to provide nutritious food to as many people as possible in an environmentally and socially sustainable way. To restore this main function of the food sector, this article suggests that it is important to bring changes in the financial sector.
