ABSTRACT

Summary:Determinants of food manufacturing growth in GermanyThis paper examines local and regional attributes associated growth in the food processing industry. The analysis uses an industrial location model to assess factors associated with food industry growth. A quality response model (discriminantanalysis) is estimated to analyse the influence of local, regional and state attributes on county level growth in the number of food processing industry as measured by the change in the number of food processing establishments. The results suggest that food processing industry growth is associated with factors similar to those influencing the location of manufacturing plants. However, growth in the food processing sector is associated with different local attributes depending on the firm's industry type (demand-oriented, supply-oriented, foot loose).
