Various segments of value chain from consumption to production that includes retailing, wholesaling, logistics, processing and production have been undergoing rapid and unprecedented changes in recent times in the country. This policy brief traces innovations in value chains brought about by new-generation start-ups, and presents an econometric analysis of field data on the impacts of procurement systems of organised retailers (supermarkets) on smallholder cultivators. It contributes to informed debate on this far-reaching transformation in the agri-food system and suggests useful policy interventions to make the transition inclusive.
