Secondary analysis to calculate productivity of the food chain using already published National Statistcs. Current price estimates of turnover, purchases and labour are deflated using price indices to get volume indices. Consumption of fixed capital volume series are obtained directly. Indices are combined to get an index of output and an index of inputs for food retail, food manufacture, food wholesale and non-residential catering. These combine to give indices for the whole food chain.
