The Greek domestic food industry plays a fundamental role in the Greek processing industry and the Greek economy in general. The food industry steadily is one of the most important sectors of the primary sector of the Greek economy, and one of the driving forces behind Greek processing; in fact, developments in it affect, to a significant extent, Greek production as a whole. The present paper examines the course and position of the food industry in the decade 2009-2017. The study of this particular decade presents particular interest, considering that it encompasses the period of economic crisis. Other findings and conclusions that will be drawn reveal the behaviour of the above sector, its potential and any weaknesses or opportunities.
