    Towards a third food regime: behind the transformation. [REVIEW]David Burch & Geoffrey Lawrence - 2009 - Agriculture and Human Values 26 (4):267-279.
    Food regime theory focuses upon the dynamics, and agents, of change in capitalist food and farming systems. Its exponents have been able to identify relatively stable periods of capital accumulation in the agri-food industries, along with the periods of transition. Recently, scholars have argued that—following a first food regime based upon colonial trade in bulk commodities like wheat and sugar, and a second food regime typified by industrial agriculture and manufactured foods—there is an emerging third food regime. This new regime (...)

    Financialization in agri-food supply chains: private equity and the transformation of the retail sector. [REVIEW]David Burch & Geoffrey Lawrence - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (2):247-258.
    The analysis of the financialization of food and farming has tended to focus on issues such as the impact on the productive and input sectors of the food chain, including the role of asset management companies, private equity consortia and other financial institutions in acquiring and managing farmland. However, processes of financialization impact along the whole agri-food supply chain, including the retail and food service sectors. This paper analyses the take-over by a private equity company of Somerfield, one of the (...)

    Supermarket power, own-labels, and manufacturer counterstrategies: international relations of cooperation and competition in the fruit canning industry. [REVIEW]Libby Hattersley, Bronwyn Isaacs & David Burch - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (2):225-233.
    Growing supermarket dominance and the expansion of own-label market share in Australia has put considerable pressure on agri-food manufacturers, and the recent movement of a number of manufacturing operations off-shore has attracted widespread attention. This paper examines the pursuit of an international manufacturing base by SPC Ardmona, one of Australia’s major fruit and vegetable processors, with a focus on strategic alliances formed with Siam Foods in Thailand and Rhodes Food Group in South Africa/Swaziland. Strategic horizontal alliances have become increasingly important (...)

    Watchdogs and ombudsmen: monitoring the abuse of supermarket power. [REVIEW]David Burch, Geoffrey Lawrence & Libby Hattersley - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (2):259-270.
    Self-regulation has become a mantra for both governments and private industry in the neoliberal era. Yet, problems remain in terms of supermarket accountability and control. Governments everywhere appear to be under increasing pressure to move beyond the self-regulatory model by enacting legislation which better monitors and polices supermarket-supplier relations. In most cases, the appointment of an oversight authority—known variously as an ombudsman, watchdog, or adjudicator—with the power to set standards and apply sanctions, and to whom suppliers can appeal in cases (...)
