[en] A sustainable agricultural production chain (“from stable to table”) is not produced
ex nihilo, especially when its future hinges on demand from a supermarket
distribution circuit. Many of the standards of conventional production chains
effectively serve as references for intermediaries and consumers alike. The tensions
between sustainability standards and market standards are thus the crucial areas in
which negotiations about the chain’s future take place. These inextricably
intertwined technical, social, and economic tensions are the subject of this research.
These tensions create a situation of uncertainty, that is to say, of choices between
pathways. They are both a springboard for action and the cause of inaction,
depending on how they are interpreted. This exploration is what justified an
intervention-research approach that combines restating questions and changing
relations to explore the possible pathways to take.
