Parameters of the Future Food Service World of Work. A Report.
Powers, Thomas F.; Swinton, John R.
The document is a study of the food service industry intended for use as a reference by food service teachers and curriculum planners. The purpose of the study is to map the economic and technological territory of the industry, to identify the dynamics shaping the industry today, and to consider questions crucial to an orderly consideration of the future. In the section on industry dynamics, a principal focus of concern is on labor cost and supply and on the productivity of labor. Other major topics are food processing equipment and methods, nutrition, and economic trends. The effects of demography and migration on the demand for food service are also considered. Bibliographic essays place the main points of the source materials into an overview context in narrative and sequential form. Bibliographies follow each section. (Author/NJ)
