During the COVID-19 crisis, Brazil’s longstanding problems of food insecurity and food inequity have only become more pronounced. While the consumers in greatest need are left with barely anything to eat, small farmers find themselves unable to bring their goods to market. Fresh food supply chains need to be redesigned so that they properly connect and protect their weakest links, write André Duarte, Lars Meyer Sanches, Michele Martins e Vinicius Picanço (all from Insper, São Paulo). Part of a series of blogs linked to the British Academy-funded project Engineering Food: infrastructure exclusion and ‘last mile’ delivery in Brazilian favelas.
