000014680 520__ $$aFood and beverage companies are facing a rapidly changing world.  Global demand is rising as the world’s population grows. Yet the  planet’s ability to meet this demand is threatened by factors such as  droughts and other expected consequences of climate change, together  with land degradation and biofuel production. At the same time consumers  everywhere are growing more knowledgeable and concerned about the  ethics of where and how their food and drink are produced.
A number of innovative companies have begun integrating  smallholders into their supply chains. There is evidence that this  strategy can attract customers and manage supply risks. The investment  by a company can be relatively modest if the company collaborates with  farmers’ organisations, government, and other non-commercial actors.  This approach to investment can have broader impacts on the rural  sector, ensuring that trade benefits men and women farmers who are  normally marginalised from wealth creation.
Ensuring a smallholder sourcing programme can deliver both  commercially viable products and value to the smallholder, requires a  number of structural challenges to be overcome. An increasing number of  new business models are emerging of global and domestic companies that  have adapted to overcome these challenges.
<strong>Key principles</strong>
Five principles to underpin sustainable trading  relationships that ensure both corporate and smallholder value:
<ul class='square_dot_ul' class="dash">
<li>Chain-wide collaboration and innovation</li>
<li>Market linkages</li>
<li>Fair and transparent governance</li>
<li>Equitable sharing of costs and risks</li>
<li>Equitable access to services</li>
This briefing builds on the Sustainable Food Lab work on  &lsquo;New Business Models for Sustainable Tarding relationships&rsquo; and Oxfam  agricultral market programmes. Initial findings were shared at the Oxfam  GB event in May 2009, &lsquo;Business Models for a Better World&rsquo;, with the  briefing launched at the 2010 art of farming conference.
