This article encourages food systems advocates to move away from the misguided notion that local food systems are superior to larger scale food systems. The article asserts that outcomes such as sustainability or justice are a result of the actions of stakeholders and the content of agendas and not the scale of the food system itself. The authors apply scale theory as adopted from the realm of geography as a justification for their argument.
