Abstract: Official list of top500 companies according to annual revenue and net profit is provided and publicized in Hungary every year by contribution of international data service corporations as Bisnode or Creditreform. The reliability of these orders can be controlled through corporate information database of Opten or Central Statistical Office. The main purposes of this study is to identify the most important leading companies of Hungarian food industry on the basis of revenue and net profit after tax orders and to analyse financial features and changes of these in period of 2010-2015. The main focus is on the investigation of capital structure, solvency and profitability (particularly return on equity) using financial indicators. Our hypothesis is that the accompanies of leading position both in revenue and net profit are safe capital structure (low debt and loan ratio), stability in solvency and positive equity risk premium. The research is based on official annual reports, relevant macroeconomic data and international literature of financial analysis.
