Les enjeux de la certification biologique et équitable du quinoa (Chenopodium Quinoa Willd.) du consommateur au producteur

Abstract : The thesis analyses the challenges of organic and fair trade quinoa labelling at different levels of the value chain.We show that organic and fair trade labels (and their juxtaposition) are imperfect tools to support consumers’ decision to buycott ethical products. They should rather be considered as transaction-specific and strategic assets. Moreover, the processes through which these labels are constructed and managed are esssential to understand the governance of the chain. Based on these results, the thesis shows that the social and environmental sustainability of the value chain does not immediately derive from the use of the label or from the existence of these chains. Sustainability largely depends on local articulations between agricultural production systems, agrarian systems and rural livelihoods. Beyond this result – here applied to quinoa but applicable to other value chains –, the comparison between the Bolivian and the Peruvian cases enable us to put in perspective the appeal of combining the organic and fair trade qualifications.
