Among the highlights:attitudes, practices and purchasing expectations. Among the highlights:

  • Labor is the most critical issue among processors with government regulations a distant second.
  • Maintenance and consumables dominate processors' lists of expenditures. Nearly all processors report spending on in-house maintenance, parts and sanitizers in 1999.
  • Expenditures have increased, particularly for buildings, equipment and utilities.
  • A processor's current manufacturer representative is the most important source for information, according to the majority of processors.
