Pork production in the Netherlands is dominated by an agro-industrial approach, which has led to several sustainability problems. Due to path dependency, this prevailing mode of production is difficult or seemingly impossible to alter. Hence, in order to address sustainability concerns, there is a need to construct a new pork supply chain. The article discusses the techno-institutional dynamics of this construction process and assesses the sustainability performance of the new pork supply chain. It highlights the importance of agency and of learning and negotiation processes in the creation of a new path. The article concludes with the observation that new path dependencies co-evolve in the process of path creation.
