Overview

An agroindustry is an enterprise that processes materials of plant or animal origin. Agroindustrial projects are unique because of three characteristics of their raw materials: seasonality, perishability, and variability. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with an analytical framework for designing agroindustrial projects. It is written for private managers and public sector analysts involved in establishing agroindustries. The framework is tailored specifically to the distinctive characteristics of developing country environments, but the approach is also relevant to the design of agroindustrial projects in more industrialized economies. These food and fiber processing businesses constitute a significant and dynamic segment of the private sector and are of importance to a country ' s development.
