Abstract

This article focuses on the exercise of mutualist control from a statistical inquiry about agri-food groups. Under mutualist control, financial relations between firms are not only the concern of the influence capacity but also of the activity commitment. Illustrated by the construction of a data base, the paper highlights the necessity to take into account minority links and joint control in order to understand the clustering dynamics. The increasing of firms embeddedness during last period hides the strong power concentration into a few numbers of companies. This concentration of mutualist control which is related to a density of links, raises the problem of owner associate in a corporate governance.
