Journal of Food Distribution Research, 2009, vol. 40, issue 1, 7
This study analyzes factors influencing growth of small and medium-large food-manufacturing establishments in the United States. The results provide evidence suggesting that small food manufacturing establishments tend to grow in areas with a relatively low per-capita income and in areas where the number of small establishments is large relative to the number of medium-large establishments. Incontrast, the number of medium-large establishments tends to increase in areas with a relatively high per-capita income and in areas where the number of small establishments is small relative to the number of medium-large establishments.
