The Food Industry from Feeling Full to Fulfilment

Jones, Michael K. & Rich, Bruce R. (2004) The Food Industry from Feeling Full to Fulfilment. In Bailey, C., Cabrera, D., & Buys, L. (Eds.) Social Change in the 21st Century Conference; Centre for Social Change Research; Queensland University of Technology.


The foods developed and marketed by the Australian food manufacturing industry have provided an insight into the industry’s evolution as it has responded to community expectations. The dominant societal expectations of the twentieth century are presented as eras. The expectations of each era continue to contribute cumulatively to each subsequent era, resulting in increasing complexity and sophistication of society’s demands. This evolution of the food industry’s products and function is depicted by a conceptual framework, which portrays the inter-relationship between society, government and industry within each of the proposed eras. These eras are examined and used to explain why the current trend for change and functional expectations will continue to strengthen.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
