Auteurs :
KASANEN, P.
SAVOLAINEN, M.

Description :
The paper investigates the distribution chain of foodstuffs from the factory to the consumer, from the point of view of the different energy inputs needed. Connections between the changes in the structure of the distribution system and changes in energy consumption are looked for. A model is developed for an energy audit of a distribution system, which is used to calculate the energy requirements of the Finnish food distribution system.
