Chapter 9: Fairness and ordre public in certified global food chains
Global food chains are growing longer and more complex. This chapter reviews global certification schemes for food products from the perspective of developing countries. Developing countries are rich in resources and know-how relating to nutritious, healthy and trendy foods. It pinpoints weaknesses in the intellectual property regime that may allow exploitation of traditional knowledge disguised as fair trade. In particular, it assesses whether developing countries may appeal to ordre public. It asks whether a general standard of honest commercial practices may translate into a soft law norm on the international level.
