The focus of this report is on legal, regulatory, and institutional barriers identified through interviews with producers and other stakeholders who are currently participating in, and have knowledge of, the Greenbelt local food economy and supply chains. 

The report provides background on, and analysis of, the legal and regulatory barriers, and reviews some examples of how other jurisdictions have developed laws, regulations and policies to overcome barriers similar to those currently faced by producers in the Greenbelt. For each of the barriers identified, the report considers specific actions that could be taken by government regulators to overcome these barriers, and promote and provide the conditions for a more sustainable local food economy in the Greenbelt.
