Abstract:

A comprehensive analysis is made of the movement of food and supplies from their sources, through middlemen, to consumers in the public market-place of Estancia, Iloilo, a town of 15,000 people located on the northeastern corner of Panay Island in the Philippines. An insight into the social and economic operations of this marketing process--extrapolated to underdeveloped countries throughout the world--suggests action programs for coping effectively with the impediments to progress which lie in many present production and marketing patterns.
