New Book: "European Pork Chains"

There's a new book that discusses the structure of the Iberian and Mangalitsa industries in Europe, along with other differentiated pork sectors around the world (e.g. China and South Africa):

In this book the results are presented of a comprehensive inventory of pork chains that has been conducted through expert interviews and in-depth case studies. The main focus of the book is on how well diverse and fragmented supply in the European pork sector matches differentiating demands for pork products in rapidly evolving markets.

One of the central topics discussed in the book is management of quality in diverse mainstream and specialty European pork chains. Inter-enterprise information systems, governance forms, logistics and sustainability aspects of European pork chains are also presented, as well as a number of interesting innovations in the chains.
Here is a link to the table of contents.
