The corporate agri-food regime: questions about the materialization of ultra-processed açaí in the 21st century/Federal University of Paraiba

Goal

Review the state-of-the-art literature on agri-food regimes, as well as highlighting, mainly, two phenomena: flex crops and ultraprocessed foods. In the second stage of the research, we propose a case study on the Agro-industrial Complex of Açaí.

Results

Therefore, we point out that there is a direct interaction between the corporate agri-food regime, the financialization and flexibilization of agricultural crops, the production of ultra-processed foods and the expansion of Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), such relations are incentive or constrained by public policies. This research is positioned in the field of Food Sovereignty and Security.
