PRODUCTION CONTRACT PERFORMANCE IN TOMATO PROCESSING INDUSTRY: ANALYSIS OF ALGERIAN CASE

This paper analyses empirically the processing tomato market and contracting practice in Algeria. We use extensive data on production outcomes for processing tomato growers (including 3758 coordinated grower-processor contracts) to examine the performance of grower-processor contracts. The aim of this study is to characterize the empirical relevance and regularities in tomato processor-grower provision contract. Results indicate that technology differences and regional specificity affect significantly the contract performance (fulfillment) of tomato processor-grower contract. Some policy implications are derived from this study in order to highlight the main considerations to be taken into account by the involved regulatory office.
