MARTINEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Yamilka et al. Accessibility to agricultural products: case study in Jaruco municipality, Mayabeque province. cultrop [online]. 2021, vol.42, n.4, suppl.1, e01.  Epub 30-Dic-2021. ISSN 0258-5936.

There are many factors that impact the food acquisition: income, prices (which affect availability and affordability), preferences and individual beliefs, cultural traditions and geographical, environmental and socioeconomic factors, which interact in a complex way to configure individual eating habits. In this sense, a study was carried out in the Jaruco municipality, in Mayabeque province, Cuba, with the objective of determining the accessibility level of food, based on offers of different agricultural products that are offered under different commercialization forms. The work was based on the availability on the supply in four popular councils of the municipality. 90 people were surveyed, including producers and consumers. Results of surveys were processed by descriptive statistics, Chi-square (χ²) of independence. The statistical analysis showed that there is a significant dependence between the variety of products and the access area; on the other hand, 69.86 % of respondents considered that price is the factor that has the greatest impact on the accessibility of agricultural products in the locality. The supply of products in the municipality is considered deficient in quantity, quality and variety; there is marked dissatisfaction in the popular councils that are located far from the urban center, where the diversity of products is scarce and access to them is less.
