Adding Value to Indiana's Commodities.
Welch, Mary A., Ed.
Economic Issues for Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resources, n10 Fall 1995
Food processing plants are adding value to bulk and intermediate products to sell overseas. The Asian Pacific Rim economies constituted the largest market for consumer food products in 1993. This shift toward consumer food imports in this area is due to more women working outside the home, the internationalization of populations, and dramatic changes in demographics. The important trade factors for the U.S. are: continued success as the most efficient food processors in the world and development of materials and processes to extend the shelf-life of products. The booklet concludes with a student quiz. (EH)
