General objective of the project is to integrate advancement in scientific knowledge about the impact of food chains with application of knowledge to practice to increase food chains sustainability through public policies and private strategies.

This general objective will be pursued through the following specific objectives:


Baltic Studies Centre has participated in multiple project work packages:

Development of multi-criteria matrix

The most significant output and result from WP2 is the multi-criteria matrix. This sets out the key issues that need to be taken into account when assessing the performance of food supply chains across the 12 countries examined, whose reports is presented in the attached document in all its richness and diversity.

Comparative supply chain assessment

In Latvia performance of global and local wild blueberry supply chains were assessed. The research conducted analises the wild blueberry sector in Latvia, its economic relevance, cultural aspects and recent transformations, it gives an overview of the national value-chain and flow-charts in wild berries sector, describes the structure and organization of global and local chains, the actors involved and their relations.

Synthesis comparison

Baltic Studies Centre researchers were comparatively assessing the performance of wild blueberry supply chains in Latvia and raspberry supply chains in Serbia. The results were later incorporated in broader comparative synthesis based on the thematic reports. Thematic reports (deliverable 4.1) were written guided by the following questions:
