CONCLUSIONS In terms of

CONCLUSIONS In terms of food safety and food quality, there can be some slight differences between the foodstuffs distributed via the conventional (long) chains and the food which can be directly obtained from the local producers. Sometimes this can lead to less safe situations (presence of environmental contaminants or toxins stemming for non‐appropriate crop management techniques) but this is mostly an exception that can be avoided by a good education of the producer and of the consumers. On the other hand, contaminants stemming from more complex processes and long‐term storage of the foodstuffs will generally be less present in the short supply chain (especially in the organic production) if appropriate food‐ grade materials (utensils, packaging) are selected to handle the food. In addition, by buying fresh and less processed products, the consumer will improve the nutritional quality of its food. Last but not least, self‐production of vegetables and fruit will be even better for the health of the consumer thanks to some extra physical activity required for their production.
