Abstract

The consumer food market in the United States is nearly 1.25 trillion dollars. Much of this value is generated after the farm gate by firms in the food marketing system. This article covers the primary actors in this system with a particular emphasis on retailers and food service firms. The role of direct farm-to-consumer markets is also addressed. The article highlights important consumer and regulatory trends. These include food labeling requirements, food safety, the linkage between diet and health, the growth in functional foods, and concerns about the sustainability of food production and distribution methods.
