Análisis comparativo de la eficiencia de las cooperativas fruteras de la provincia de Lleida


  • Pere Sabaté Prats

    () (Universidad de Lleida)


This study describes some actions carried out in the Lleida fruit sector regarding the concentration of supply and the creation of second level co-operatives. Following this the study analyses the actions adopted by a second level co-operative in the province, the entity which has managed to gather the greatest number of co-operatives. Then a comparative analysis is carried out to determine the degree of technical and economic efficiency shown by the co-operatives associated to the second level entity versus co-operatives which have chosen not to associate. In the period analysed no great differences appear between the efficiency levels obtained by the two groups.
