What are the potential solutions to reduce food inflation and improve distribution?

There is no single solution to reduce food inflation and improve distribution, but some possible measures include:

Adopting technology and the web to connect buyers and sellers of food products directly, and to improve the efficiency and transparency of the supply chain, such as smart process automation, remote monitoring, supply chain planning, and digital payments.

Regulating the market and the supply chain to prevent the dominance and exploitation of large corporations and established brands, such as Amazon, over the prices, quality, and availability of food products, and to promote fair and equitable trade.

Supporting the access to finance and financial services for farmers and small businesses, such as insurance, credit, and savings, to help them invest and expand their businesses, eliminate food waste, and cope with shocks and risks1
