Local public purchases
Local public food purchases have been used by many countries as a territorial development strategy that simultaneously contributes to poverty reduction, Food and Nutritional Security, and the socioeconomic inclusion of family farmers.
In particular, public food purchases can provide an accessible marketing channel and source of income for family farming, enabling them not only to invest in production and productivity, but to improve their livelihoods and boost local economies

Short marketing circuits:
Marketing remains one of the main challenges for family farming. It is crucial to have innovative market solutions based on locally available resources and integrated into the social context of each area to promote new and renewed services and goods, and the revaluation of traditional products and products with specific quality labels [ 1].
For this reason, short marketing circuits emerge as alternatives that integrate producers and consumers, reduce intermediation and food losses and waste, promote a fairer distribution of value in the supply chain and reduce the footprint of carbon .
