by Anthony E. Gallo

Agriculture Information Bulletin No. (AIB-743) 15 pp, August 1998

Cover image New food product introductions fell sharply in 1996.

Profitability from food manufacturing and retailing was higher due to strong sales, wage and producer price stability, and streamlining of operations.
