Vertical Integration in Produce Markets: A Colorado Cooperativeâ€™s Strategic Response to Change
AbstractAn evolving produce industry has placed vegetable growers in northern Colorado at a competitive disadvantage.

This case study discusses the results of both a market demand and processing feasibility study conducted for these vegetable growers.
