Infographic 1: A Synopsis of Luxembourg’s Food System
In July 2020, the SFP team published the first infographic, and its accompanying synopsis, in Forum magazine. This visual depiction aims to unravel the complexity of the Luxembourgish food system, and avoid the downfalls of simpler depictions, which focus more directly on key actors, or what can be called the ‘food supply circuit’. The ‘food supply circuit’ includes the actions of input-supply, farming, processing, trade, gastronomy, and waste treatment. While the importance of the food circuit actors is clear, this narrow approach can overlook actors in the broader foodscape including:
• governance and regulation
• education and awareness-raising
• business interests and professional corporations
• marketing and advertising
• investing and insurance
• non-profit, voluntary and community groups
• operational services
• individual citizens.
The visual depiction of the food system shows that the food supply circuit actors operate within, and are constantly affected and affecting, the broader and more diverse foodscape.
