Food Land Belts are becoming more and more developed since the beginning of the new century. Characteristically, they involve a larger number of Agri-food projects linking farm production and farmers on the one hand and citizens, organized in different ways, on the other hand. Using some recent research, this short paper suggests some of the critical conditions for the success of these projects, because it is clear that not all Agri-food projects and their Food Land Belts have been successful.

Keywords: Agri-food; Food land belts; Conditions for successful Agri-food projects; Short circuits; Citizen involvement; Farmer involvement
