The implementation of environmental controls normally results in added costs and may result in economic and locational adjustments within these industries. The study summarizes these adjustments as they relate to the fruit and vegetable processing industries in terms of costs, capital requirements, profits, industry structure and location, employment, product prices and regional and national economic impacts. The general approach used was to initially analyze and describe the characteristics of supply, demand, price and operating requirements of these industries and given this base, evaluate the microeconomic relationships among representative firms within the fruit and vegetable processing industries as a first step; and, second to then project macroeconomic impacts at the industry level based on the resulting microeconomic impact relationships which were developed.
