Abstract

Under the conditions of integration and liberalisation processes, as a result of the increasing intensity and scope of competition, competitiveness is becoming the basic condition for the functioning of enterprises and industries, as well as an important research area in economics. Most important is the ability to obtain sufficient and lasting competitive results, which translates to maintaining a competitive position over time. One of the most important economic and social sectors of the economy is the food industry. For this reason, the purpose of this elaboration was to evaluate the level and changes of the competitive position of the food industry within the EU countries in the period of 2005-2017. The following indicators were evaluated: share in exports, trade coverage rate and profitability and synthetical indicator of competitive position constructed on the basis of Hellwig’s method. The research conducted shows that despite the general trend of the “new” countries of the EU improving their competitive position, the competitive leaders within the food industry were the “old” EU countries.
