MetadataShow full item record
The meat-processing industry has been holding a leading position among several food-proccssing industries since mid-seventies . Its production capacities till 1975 represented an insufficient level in relation to the commodity animal production in the nutrition zone of Łódź urban administrative province (including provinces of Łódź, Piotrków, Płock, Sieradz, and Skierniewice). Increase of production capacities achieved through putting on stream a big plant at Rawa Mazowiecka accompanied by decline in animal production caused that the analyzed region possesses idle production capacities to the tune of 20 to 30 per cent of total capacities. The final production of the meat-processing industry determined by the le v e l of centralized purchasing of slaughter animals has been showing a downward trend s in c e 1977. Ready products go mainly for supply of the nutrition zone and for export. Possibilities of increasing production capacities of the meat-processing industry will depend upon expansion of animal breeding. The basic task of the meat-processing industry in the coming years will be to reconstruct the le v e l of centralized purchasing of slaughter animals and thus of per capita consumption from 1975.
