    I find this article (and others on decentralized processing) to be reassuring to the approach we are taking within the agrofood value chains.

    However, our field experience has taught us this would mandate new value chains (partnerships) all the way down to the consumers. Especially, current business model of volume driven business models of distribution would/could prove to be biggest hurdle.

    An important questions to ask is: will the existing players with status-quo and huge existing capacities will open-up for such a possibility? Probably not very easily unless disruptive entreprenurial movement with collabarative structures take positions along the entire value chain.

    Possibly exciting times for dynamic entrepreneurship is ahead of us in industries which are still labelled as conventional sectors of operation.

    Best Wishes,
