The course aims at the description of the agro-industrial system as a result of the growing phenomenon of globalization and regionalization of markets. In describing of its key components (from production to consumption) the analysis of interconnections between national and supranational systems, regional and local systems is included. A significant part of the course will be devoted to analyzing the efficiency of farms, evaluated through different methodological approaches and corporate decisions. The food system is distinguished by certain structural characteristics and, among these, the extreme atomization that affects efficiency and competitiveness. Within the of supply concentration tools, wide space will be paid to the cooperative company. In view of the increasing integration of agriculture with other sectors and the importance of agricultural activities in the environment, the territory, in society, the topics dealt with will take account of the different (or similar) economic dynamics, disciplinary approaches, and / or, again, laws in a perspective of comparison and similarity between areas.
