    Growth of sales and assets of large cooperative and proprietary firms in five food industries from 1975 to 1980 were analyzed. Models of firm growth were estimated using data from 32 cooperatives and 35 proprietary corporations. The seven factors included in the model affect the growth of cooperatives and proprietary firms similarly but fail to account for the more rapid growth achieved by cooperatives during the period studied.
