Food systems frameworks require greater consistency. Beyond food production, agri-food supply chains, and the market and institutional food environment, a greater understanding of the social, economic, biological, and psychological determinants of food choices is important. Other important factors for decision makers to understand are the relationships among nutrition, health, and the burden of diseases; the political economy; power dynamics; and gender differences.
