2005 1999

On average, the labour productivity has increased within the EU. But in

Malta, Slovenia, Latvia, Cyprus, Italy, France and Greece the labour productivity

has decreased. In Slovenia, France and Italy this is expectably partly caused by

the decrease in value added, that has not translated in a decrease in the number

of employees yet.

In France and Slovenia the labour productivity in the total food industry has

decreased as well, which may indicate that innovation in production methods is

not implemented as quickly in those countries as in other countries. In all other

countries the labour productivity has increased in total food production, despite

the decrease in the dairy sector.
