Food Processing Sector Productivity and Competitiveness

Trade, Competitiveness and Blockchain: Productivity, Innovation, and Product Differentiation Increasingly, anti-trade sentiments, often fueled by the idea that trade has created more losers than winners, have become increasingly common in foreign policy. This is exemplified by Britain’s vote to exit the European Union (Brexit), opposition by the U.S. to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the ongoing renegotiation of the North-American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Our project examines the competitiveness of Ontario and Canadian food manufacturing firms by adopting novel/disruptive technologies.
