dc.description.abstractProduct innovation is a competitive strategy in food industry. Successful productdevelopment management is a key determinant of a firm?s performance. In recent yearsfunctional foods, which are innovative food products that provide health benefits beyondbasic nutrition, have become increasingly important in Germany. Using the structure-conductperformanceapproach it can be argued that product innovation raises barriers to entry andthus improve profitability. This study examines the effect of functional food innovativeactivity (compared to overall innovative activity) on the profitability of 23 German foodindustry sectors from 1995 to 1999. Panel data analysis also includes concentration, firm size,market size and growth, advertising expenditure and capital intensity. While a positiverelationship between product introduction and profitability was hypothesized, it is notsupported by data.en_US
