- Alternative and conventional agrifood networks are not separate spheres functioning in radically different ways.
- Alternative agrifood networks are characterised by a promise of difference in the projects of those who promote them.
- This promise of difference spurs the formulation of specific rules that are interlaced in various ways with conventional rules.
- Upscaling of alternative agrifood networks does not necessarily lead to their ’conventionalisation’.
