A Continuum of Consumer Attitudes Toward Genetically Modified Foods in the United States AgEcon
Ganiere, Pierre; Chern, Wen S.; Hahn, David E..
A national telephone survey was conducted in the United States in April 2002 to study the consumer acceptance of genetically modified (GM) foods. Attitudes toward GM foods were examined through the use of a multiple correspondence analysis (MCA), analyzing the interrelationships among many categorical variables. This method was combined with a cluster analysis to construct a typology of consumers' attitudes. Four distinct classes of attitudes were finally extracted, denoted as: Proponents, Non-Opponents, Moderate Opponents, and Extreme Opponents. It was estimated that only 35% of the surveyed population was opposed to GM foods.

A SOCIOECONOMIC APPROACH TO ASSESSING PRICE COMPETITION BETWEEN PRIVATE LABELS AND NATIONAL BRANDS: THE CASE OF SHREDDED CHEESE AgEcon
Huang, Min-Hsin; Hahn, David E.; Jones, Eugene.
An LA/AIDS model is developed to estimate demand elasticities for packages of 8-oz shredded cheese for higher- and lower-income consumers. Data used in this study are scanner data for six supermarket stores in two distinct socioeconomic areas. Results show that: (1) lower-income shoppers are more price-sensitive than higher-income shoppers for both private labels and national brands; (2) compared with private labels, consumers are very sensitive to national brands price changes even in higher-income areas; (3) cross-price elasticities between private labels and national brands are all positive, i.e., private labels and national brands are substitutes in both lower- and higher-income stores; and (4) the number of promoted items does not have a...

Consumer Attitudes towards Genetically Modified Foods in Emerging Markets: The Impact of Labeling in Taiwan AgEcon
Ganiere, Pierre; Chern, Wen S.; Hahn, David E.; Chiang, Fu-Sung.
In 2001, Taiwan enacted a law for genetically modified food (GM foods) labeling. Beginning January 1st 2003, food containing more than 5% of GM ingredients must be labeled. Taiwan imports most of its soybeans from the United States. In order to assess the effects of the new policy, a telephone survey was conducted in 2002. A total of 257 interviews were completed. A typology of consumers' attitudes towards GM foods is constructed from the use of a multiple correspondence analysis and a classification method. Four profiles are identified: proponents, 52%, moderate opponents, 32.5%, extreme opponents, 12.5%, and those with no opinion, 5.5%.

Decisions in Global Sourcing and Supply: Deep Red Canning Co. AgEcon
Mwai, James; Hahn, David E.; Mlambiti, Melchior.
The case is written for a senior undergraduate agribusiness course. Based on collaboration between The Ohio State University and Sokoine University of Agriculture in Tanzania, the case addresses the instructional needs of agribusiness students in both the US and in the developing world setting. For instance, in the US scenario, the case explores global procurement strategies and the interactions and decisions necessary in implementing alternative sourcing strategies. From the Tanzanian perspective, the case examines Africa's capacity building problem and the transition from home based cottage industries to competitors in the global market place.

DETERMINANTS OF PRICE ELASTICITIES FOR STORE BRANDS AND NATIONAL BRANDS OF CHEESE AgEcon
Huang, Min-Hsin; Hahn, David E.; Jones, Eugene.
A two-stage modeling process is developed to estimate factors that determine price sensitivities for store and national brands of cheese. Results show that several factors affect price sensitivities. AIDS and LA/AIDS models are used in the analyses and meta-regression results show no difference in own-price elasticities for these two models.

EVALUATING OPTIMAL PRODUCT MIX USING DYNAMIC SIMULATION: A TOMATO PROCESSING CASE AgEcon
Swire-Thompson, Andrew; Sporleder, Thomas L.; Hahn, David E.; Bash, Winston.
Technology-driven change is everywhere and value-capture from new technology is challenging for business managers. Also rival firms may use technology as part of major success strategies. This situation leads managers to be keenly interested in evaluation of alternative technologies prior to making a sunk investment in physical facilities. In contemplating new or added-capacity processing facilities, managers and investors must evaluate return on investment (ROI). Evaluation of ROI is complex because it varies by alternative technology and the resultant potential product mix alternatives associated with that technology at the time the investment capital is committed to build the processing plant. This research examines optimal alternative product...

FARM BUSINESS GOALS AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AgEcon
Stark, Christopher E.; Moss, Leeann E.; Hahn, David E..
This paper investigates empirically the relationship between both farm business goals and sources of competitive advantage, and various farm and producer characteristics using new primary data collected from a survey of Ohio farmers. Results show that most farmers do not recognize sources of competitive advantage and practice strategy implementation beyond reliance on longstanding paradigms for success within the context of government farm program support and the use of traditional risk management tools. However, several key insights emerge. Farmers who engage in cost leadership strategies are more profitable. Farmers who suggest that the goal of their farming operation is to enhance profitability/efficiency use more management tools, while lifestyle...

Key Success Factors for Emerging Agricultural Marketing Cooperatives AgEcon
Bruynis, Chris L.; Goldsmith, Peter D.; Hahn, David E.; Taylor, William J..
Cooperatives comprise an important part of the American agricultural system. Key factors important to the success of agricultural marketing cooperatives were identified and statistically analyzed using data collected from fifty-two cooperatives. The research quantified the effects of several independent variables on the probability of success. These variables were: sufficient equity before start up, maintaining an adequate business volume, keeping and distributing accurate financial records, importance of previous cooperatives experience and continued management training for both the board and manager, marketing agreements. Based on this research and the comprehensive literature review, marketing cooperatives can increase their chances of success by...

Opportunities for Producing Table Grapes in Egypt for the Export Market: A Decision Case Study AgEcon
Diab, Yaser A.A.; Mousa, Magdi A.A.; Warnock, Daniel F.; Hahn, David E..
The Barakat Fruit Farm desires to increase their share of the exportable grape market in Egypt. Unfortunately, the grape cultivars currently cultivated by the farm bear fruit after the early market window to the European Union when prices are high. An analysis of the company, competition, consumer, market channel, and conditions, provides insight into possible solutions to the challenges faced by the farm management. Designed for undergraduate classroom use, this case encourages students to think outside of traditional production techniques to arrive at solutions that are viable from both crop culture and financial standpoints.

Processing Costs, Labor Efficiency, and Economies of Size in Cooperatively Owned Fluid Milk Plants AgEcon
Thraen, Cameron S.; Hahn, David E.; Roof, James B..
This article examines the operating cost structure of 15 cooperatively owned fluid milk processing plants. The selected plants range from small, low-volume facilities to large, high-volume plants with varying levels of capital and labor inputs. Operating costs are presented for the plants by converting monthly fiscal data to averages and grouping the plants by relative processing volume. The functional relationship between total and unit costs and average plant volume is estimated. Processing cost per gallon declines by 1.6 percent for a 10 percent increase in plant volume. Approximately 85 percent of the reduction in unit cost is attributable to lower labor, packaging, energy, repair, maintenance, and depreciation costs.
