Abstract: The Canadian food manufacturing sector contributes about 2\% to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and is a vital contributor to employment. This thesis examines the relationships between size, inventory management, and productivity in the Canadian food manufacturing sector. The findings of the study indicate that large plants are more productive than small and medium plants. Additionally, inventory turnover and productivity are positively correlated.
