Recently, there has been a general trend toward higher levels of concentration in all sectors of Illinois food distribution and manufacturing. These changes, in part, are attributable to economies of scale in physical operations as well as the national growth of conglomerates. Future growth in food distribution is likely to be more restricted than in the food manufacturing sector. The moderately increasing trend in concentration experienced in all sectors is likely to continue.
