Globalization is rapidly transforming the geography of food and the ways in which food (re)produces culture from the daily experiences of food availability and taste at the neighborhood scale up to the global homogenization of production and distribution systems (Ritzer 2004). However, the ways in which large-scale structures and processes in the global food apparatus influence and interact with the local-level experiences of food systems in the Global South remain deeply entangled (Santos 1999; Haesbaert 1998). This discussion proposal is anchored in an analysis of the challenges of food production by Cooperativism and their cultural meanings in the context of globalization, drawing on a novel case study in the Metropolitan Region of Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil.
