Abstract
As consumer interest in locally produced food increases, farmers and other producers wants to marketing their products as locally produced. A range of different certifications for environmentally friendly food have appeared. More costumers want to buy their food directly from the farmer at the same time as a more and more globalized world advocates free trade and removal of barriers to trade. By using an expanded gravity model this paper will examine how the demand of local food affects the Swedish import of food from other countries in Europe. The findings of the paper conclude that the demand of local food do affect the trade. Therefore it seems possible that the certification is a nontariff barrier to trade.
