Summary "The book deals with global food value chains and different technological challenges and new economic realities connected to it. It delves into the issue of the consolidation of the food supply chain and the challenges it presents for competition law and policy. The issue of power in the food value chain is also considered as well as the intersection of competition law in the food industry with a number of international and transnational legal regimes, in particular, trade law, human rights law and international standard setting. The book deals with the considerable role of intellectual property ('IP') rights and innovation in the development of the industry and the strategies followed by the main actors, in particular, in the upstream factors of production market to build competitive advantage and protect their technology. It covers a wide range of jurisdictions like United States of America, European Union, and BRICS countries"-- Provided by the publisher
