Choice of technology in the Kenyan food processing sector, with particular reference to the situation and orientation of technical change: a project outline
MetadataShow full item record
Four areas of policy are concerned in this project on the choice of technology and technical change in the food processing industry. These are: - (a) economic considerations (b) nutritional considerations (c) the orientation of technical change, and (d) the growth of an African industrial class. The choice of the food processing industry as the sector for study is explained and this is followed by a brief discussion of the products to be investigated. These products are chosen because they are the major processed foodstuffs consumed by the mass of the population. The methodology of the research is described and, finally, a number of hypotheses are stated.
