Technical efficiency of the Greek meatpacking industry in 1994-2007
The article employs a double-bootstrap data envelopment analysis to measure the technical efficiency of meatpacking companies in Greece and identify its determinants over the period of 1994-2007. The rationale for adopting this method is to yield bias-corrected efficiency scores of firms and robust inferences about its drivers. The empirical results indicate that the typical meatpacker of our sample operates with 89% efficiency and performance is higher for firms that are members of a group and adopt a strategy for increasing the skill of employees, while larger and older firms operate at lower efficiency.
