    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 (...)

    Retailer-Driven Agricultural Restructuring—Australia, the UK and Norway in Comparison.Carol Richards, Hilde Bjørkhaug, Geoffrey Lawrence & Emmy Hickman - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (2):235-245.
    In recent decades, the governance of food safety, food quality, on-farm environmental management and animal welfare has been shifting from the realm of ‘the government’ to that of the private sector. Corporate entities, especially the large supermarkets, have responded to neoliberal forms of governance and the resultant ‘hollowed-out’ state by instituting private standards for food, backed by processes of certification and policed through systems of third party auditing. Today’s food regime is one in which supermarkets impose ‘private standards’ along the (...)

    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 (...)

    The Resilience of Long and Short Food Chains: A Case Study of Flooding in Queensland, Australia.Kiah Smith, Geoffrey Lawrence, Amy MacMahon, Jane Muller & Michelle Brady - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (1):45-60.
    This paper provides new insights into the food security performance of long and short food chains, through an analysis of the resilience of such chains during the severe weather events that occurred in the Australian State of Queensland in early 2011. Widespread flooding cut roads and highways, isolated towns, and resulted in the deaths of people and animals. Farmlands were inundated and there were food shortages in many towns. We found clear evidence that the supermarket-based food chain delivery system experienced (...)

    Constructing “Green” Foods: Corporate Capital, Risk, and Organic Farming in Australia and New Zealand. [REVIEW]Stewart Lockie, Kristen Lyons & Geoffrey Lawrence - 2000 - Agriculture and Human Values 17 (4):315-322.
    Public concern over environmentalquality and food safety has culminated in thedevelopment of markets for “green” foods – foodsthat are variously construed as fresh, chemical-free,nutritious, natural, or produced in anenvironmentally-sustainable manner. Understanding theemergence of “green” foods is dependent on analysisboth of the ways in which foods are produced andprocessed, and of the meanings that are attached tothem at each stage of their production,transformation, and consumption. The notion of “green”foods is thereby understood here as a fluid andcontestable signifier that myriad actors involved (...)
