The high cost of agribusiness consolidation in the US

This report by ActionAid USA examines corporate consolidation by US agribusinesses. It attributes the high degree of market control by a small number of multinational companies to decades of policy choices that supported corporate consolidation and larger farms. The report summarises the impacts on rural communities, such as loss of autonomy for farmers when using pricing models based on data-driven corporate recommendations. It also sets out an alternative model: a network of small-scale, localised farms and markets.
