DIE BEPALING VAN DIE REALITEITE VAN VOEDSELBEMARKING IN DIE KAAPSE PLAKKERGEMEENSKAPPE

The availability and affordability of a community's food are to a large extent determined by the relevant food marketing system. The realities of food marketing in the squatter settlements of Cape Town are discussed. This segment of the market is almost exclusively served by the informal distributive trade within the area. A dispersed network of sphazas and fresh produce traders (meat, vegetables and fruit), well adapted to local conditions and the particular needs of the community, is in operation. The traders are economically fragile and their linkage with the First World agricultural marketing system is problematic.
