Abstract

Most writings on the evolution patterns of food retailing institutions have dealt with developed country experiences. This article reviews the evolution of food retailing systems in the developing economies and relates it to the experience of developed economies. Variations in food retailing systems among countries are related, in a systematic manner, to the differences in the environmental factors. The difficulties of introducing an innovative institution, the supermarket, in developing economies are also discussed.
