    Uittreksel

    During the last several decades, inter-organizational collaboration in the food sector has emerged
    to tackle complex problems such as sustainability. However, in practice, these networks often
    either fall short of their goal or disband. Therefore, we investigate the role of culture within these
    networks to gain insights into the transformative capacity and (dis)continuation of such agri-food
    networks. Although agri-food networks are a common research topic in transition studies, our
    understanding of the role that culture plays in them can be improved. To better understand
    culture in agri-food networks, we compare eight cases. Results indicate that a shared culture
    affect the development and continuation of these innovative networks. Despite the intention of
    many agri-food networks to transform the agri-food system, they tend to reproduce it and effect
    incremental rather than radical changes. The degree of such changes was found to be related to
    the cultural (dis)similarities between the agri-food network and the agri-food system.
