In March 1997 an international conference was held in Boston, Massachusetts, on the ways that the nutritional value and quality of foods are affected by how they are produced. It was organized by the School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University, and was attended by people from 19 countries.

The conference theme was interpreted broadly, with “quality” encompassing not only biological and chemical characteristics such as nutrient content, but also social and political consequences of different production systems. In all, 46 papers were presented, the abstracts of which are printed here, followed by the closing address. The 20 papers marked with * are included in the proceedings volume.
