Centering on the system of the Italian Wholesale Markets Network, the presentation notes how the network worked through the history and challenges of wholesale markets in the past, such as being located inside the cities, which cause high traffic congestion, no shared and recognized procedures for health and food safety, and considerable problems in dealing with wastes. These scenarios have prompted Italy to create a national plan in the 1990s for reorganizing wholesale markets, where the structure, services for distribution and sales, and responsibilities of stakeholders are discussed.
