Eurostat well-structured database of EU-27 Supply tables is used.

Abstract

Through the lens of Resource-Based Theory, this study examines extra-core Food Industry capabilities to diversify its secondary production (heterogeneity) and to overcome entry barriers in destination markets (mobility). Eurostat well-structured database of EU-27 Supply tables is used. The results demonstrate: a) entering Food core business could not be very hard for newcomers; b) EU Food industry has capabilities to undertake activities extra-core business below the average; c) Food industry secondary production is too heterogeneous and distributed over a wide range of activities. This study enlightens productive trends, hypothesizing capability needs and creating the necessary framework for possible further investigations.
