Abstract

The aim of this seminar is to explore to what extent the development of marketing platforms modifies the interactions between the actors of the agricultural sector. The scientists' view will be confronted with that of Mr. Christophe Alliot, expert at the BASIC office. In a recent report, he emphasized the inevitability and necessity of digital development, but also demonstrated that this dynamic is not without consequences for consumers' eating habits and farmers' production practices. Mixing his expertise with that of researchers and professionals will allow a comprehensive view of the impacts the development of platforms has on the scale of the value chain actors, but also on the scale of the agricultural sector as a whole.
