This article addresses the issue of the profitability of Food Quality Scheme (FQS) products as compared to reference products, which are defined as analogous products without quality label. We approach this question by taking into account the level of the value chain (upstream, processing, and downstream), the sector (vegetal, animal, seafood) and the type of FQS (PGI, PDO, Organic). We collected original data for several products produced in selected European countries, as well as in Thailand a...

This paper estimates the foodmiles (embedded distances) and transport-related carbon emissions of 27 Food Quality Scheme (FQS) products-Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), Protected Geographical Indications (PGI) and organic- A nd their reference products. It goes further than the existing literature by adopting a value chain perspective, instead of the traditional consumer perspective, and focusing on FQS products. The same methodology is applied across all the case studies. The article spec...
The carbon and land footprint of 26 certified food products - geographical indications and organic products and their conventional references are assessed. This assessment goes beyond existing literature by (1) designing a calculation method fit for the comparison between certified food and conventional production, (2) using the same calculation method and parameters for 52 products - 26 Food Quality Schemes and their reference products - to allow for a meaningful comparison, (3) transparently d...

Water Footprint (WF, henceforth) is an indicator of water consumption and has taken ground to assess the impact of agricultural production processes over freshwater. The focus of this study was contrasting non-conventional, certified products with identical products obtained through conventional production schemes (REF, henceforth) using WF as a measure of their pressure on water resources. The aim was to the show whether products that are certified as Food Quality Schemes (FQS, henceforth) coul...

Abstract This paper assesses the drivers of greenhouse gas emissions and economic performances for a sample of dairy farms Protected Designation of Origin dairy farms in France. Investigating caeteris paribus drivers of performance, we conclude that synergies are rare. Investing in farming equipment, optimizing fuel use or suppressing manure composting can however improve environmental performance by 5 to 13% without impairing profits. In parallel, increasing labor productivity and reducing the ...

Le plan climat presente le 6 juillet 2017 par le gouvernement francais s’est fixe un objectif de neutralite carbone en 2050. Dans ce contexte, le secteur foret-bois est amene a prendre une importance strategique. Cependant de grandes incertitudes persistent sur la strategie a adopter comme l’illustre l’auteure de cet article. En faisant le point sur deux etudes independantes sur le sujet, son article montre en effet que la plupart des scenarios conduisent a une hausse temporaire des emissions de...
In this paper, we test to what extent Food Quality Schemes (FQS, including Geographical Indications and organic products) contribute to the social and economic sustainability of farmers and regions through employment and education. Through employment, FQS may counter the urban migration trend affecting rural regions, and help retain economic and social capital in the local region. Indeed, as FQS are often small and specialised sectors, the economic inefficiency of such businesses may translated ...

This study quantifies the relative influence of pedo-climatic conditions –natural advantage –and market proximity in the determination of crop location in Burgundy. Econometric models are designed to study the share or presence of six different crops –barley, rapeseed, soy, proteaginous pea, hemp and lentils –at municipal scale. Market proximity is found to have a significant influence on the location of four of them, namely barley, rapeseed, proteaginous pea and hemp. Market proximity increases...
