Structural Changes and Strategies in the North American Flour Milling Industry
AbstractDynamic structural changes in the flour milling industry have resulted in fewer and larger firms, larger plants, and increased concentration. A number of features in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) could have an impact on strategies and competition in this industry. This article has three objectives. First, structural characteristics of the flour milling industries in each country, policies, and other competitive factors are described. Second, important fundamental changes from the US|Canada Free Trade Agreement (CUSTA) and NAFTA are described. Apparent changes in firm strategies since these agreements are highlighted and analyzed.
