Plateformes collectives d'approvisionnement de produits locaux - performance organisationnelle et implication des agriculteurs

Abstract : Agrifood systems are confronted with numerous socio-economic challenges. In this context, public policies support a transition to more sustainable systems. They stimulate an increase in the volume of local products in public catering. This institutional demand and other professional clients encounter several obstacles (eg volumes, diversity, quality consistency) which individual farmers do not necessarily have the capacity to meet. Recent initiatives such as collective platforms aim to structure supply chains for local products. Taking an interest in their governance therefore becomes central to supporting a transition to more sustainable supply. The objective of this thesis is to explore the modes of governance of collective platforms through the analysis of 6 case studies in the former Midi-Pyrénées region. As an extension of the theoretical proposals relating to the economics of transaction costs and an analysis of the strategic positioning of platforms, the thesis proposes a new assessment of organizational performance. Beyond explaining the organizational diversity of platforms, the analysis shows that organizational performance must be assessed by the match between governance structure and strategic positioning. The analysis shows that the platforms offer weak economic incentives to member farmers. The second part of the thesis focuses on the determinants of their involvement and shows that these are mainly socio-economic and more subjective. Ultimately, this thesis offers recommendations for improving the organizational performance of collective platforms and offers the elements of reflection for public policies.
