  This paper reports the levels of HACCP implementation, costs of implementation and operation, and benefits of implementation for the Greek meat industry. Hundred twenty enterprises were surveyed, with a 51.66% response rate. Only 24.19% of the enterprises interviewed had totally adopted HACCP, while 22.58% did not have an interest in adoption. The norm of ISO 9000 appeared to be an intermediate step in HACCP implementation. The results indicate that investment in new equipment and microbiological tests of products accounted for most of the implementation and operational costs, respectively. The main benefit reported was reduction in microbial counts, while staff training was reported as a significant problem. The study also shows that although the level of total HACCP implementation is not high, HACCP has implications for both the domestic and international markets. This study offers new information about the costs and benefits of HACCP implementation by the Greek meat industry. The main objective is to analyze the degree to which the HACCP system has been implemented by the meat industry, and the relationship between HACCP implementation and ISO 9000. In addition, it indicates the importance of major costs, problems, and benefits of implementation and their impact on domestic and international markets.

  This study describes a multi-criteria decision-making framework employed to evaluate and rank three tourism destinations, located in the northern and central Greece. Additionally, innovatory elements are the incorporation of differing levels of socioeconomic data (destination image and destination personality) within the decision framework and the direct determination of the PROMETHEE II preference thresholds. The developed methodology provides a user-friendly approach, promotes the synergy between different stakeholders, and could pave a way towards consensus. The main aim of this study was to describe the design implementation and use of a Decision Support System (D.S.S), which applies new methodological approaches for the evaluation and ranking of several tourism destinations.

  The main reason for carrying out this study was to determine possible relationships among several adoption parameters of computer use, internet usage and internet access in agriculture. The key options for determining relationships (apart from non-parametric correlation techniques) are canonical correlation analysis, probit models and logit models. Canonical correlation analysis is generally seen as a weaker statistical technique than probit or logit models. The number of categorical variables in the data set made it difficult to fit logit models. So, the left probit models are the preferred techniques for testing the research question. To address the research question survey data was collected. Producers were asked to rank, in turn, how important computers and internet usage were to their business. These rankings could then be tested against other variables collected in order to determine whether it was the cost reduction or the productivity enhancing activities that were significant in explaining the rankings.
