Competitiveness strategies, Profitability, Market share, Dairy industry.

The dairy industry is one of the most important sectors of the Greek food industry having great impact on the gross domestic product (GDP) and other economic sizes such as the turnover, the value added of the production and the number of the employees. It is characterized by a high degree of concentration and intense competition between the big enterprises and the small local enterprises of the dairy sector. The present study investigated the factors that determine the competitiveness and the selection of the strategy of the dairy industries using indicators such as profitability and market share. The results obtained show that the dairy firms undertake profit investments and use debt financing in order to be extended and acquire a bigger share of the market.
