A Final Report

The report describes two important programmes, namely the Food Acquisition Programme (PAA) and the National School Feeding Programme (PNAE), which utilise institutional procurement targeting family farmers. Both programmes are interesting innovations in the effort to put together a structured demand for family farmers in Brazil. In addition, the report estimates the scale of government procurement of agricultural produce, exploring its direct and indirect effects. As government institutions require semi or whole processed foods, it also estimates purchases from the food industry.
