This paper presents an integrating framework for analysing the adoption of new technologies in food chains. We review the literature on the adoption of genetic modification in livestock production chains and conclude that an integrated chain approach is currently lacking. Such an approach is, however, essential to analysing the adoption of technologies, such as genetic modification in livestock production. The proposed framework integrates consumers and chain participants and their concerns and benefits
