Abstract

The objective of this presentation is based on research in quantitative geography, shedding light on the analysis of the foodshed with respect to the issue of local supply, in order to help public arbitration. Foodshed approaches enable to assess the theoretical capacity of the food-self sufficiency of a specific region considering its pedological conditions. Moreover, recent analysis has shown that it is necessary to shift the assessment from the size of an isotropic circle to the commodity-group–specific spatial configuration of the foodshed based on biophysical and socioeconomic features. Following these works and focusing on a specific animal food product (beef), we present an innovative modelling approach based on spatial analysis to highlight which areas in the foodshed dedicated to feeding livestock (fodder, pastures and grasslands) are functionally connected to the nearest city by means of proximity/short beef supply chains. The results will be presented in graphical and map form, with the aim of animating and sharing interesting information for a wide range of participants at the Royal Geographical Society 2022 annual conference.
