Food sovereignty is a comprehensive and systemic approach to implement and analyze the food and production dynamics. Its key aspects were summarized in ten parameters, which serve as guidance to reflect on three food systems existing in the Department of Santa Cruz in Bolivia: agroindustrial, indigenous and agroecological. The agroindustrial system displayed the lowest contribution to food sovereignty, contrary to the agroecological with the clearest and most advanced role. However, the agroindustrial system is the widely dominant and expansive, particularly influencing the indigenous food production and consumption. The findings raise questions on the conflicts between agroindustrial and indigenous food systems in relation to food sovereignty.
