Competitive behaviour, design and technical innovation in food and beverage multinationals



Competitive behaviour, design and technical innovation in food and beverage multinationals



International Journal of Biotechnology 5(3/4): 222-248



The main objective of this paper is to analyse long-term regularities in the pattern of generating technical innovation among global food and beverage multinationals (FBMs). In order to investigate persistent technological practices, we study a panel of 16,698 utility and design patents granted to 103 major FBMs from 1977 to 1994 and present econometric evidence on a joint-product formulation of such companies' patents.
