Abstract

There is a continuing trend in developing countries, as elsewhere, to devolve activities which have hitherto been performed by the public sector to the private sector, and to less regulated markets. The marketing of staple foods is no exception to this trend, but it raises important issues about national food security, price stability, and the protection of poor people from price rises which could mean malnutrition or starvation. Rice Marketing in Indonesia describes a research project which explores these issues in depth for a staple food commodity in a large developing country. The research focuses on seasonal rice price formation, on storage and sales decisions by farmers and traders, and on competition and efficiency in marketing channels. The research approach, which involves tracing marketing chains from sample farmers, is likely to be of interest to all those concerned with studying the liberalization of food markets in developing countries.
