Competitive Strategies among Ontario farms marketing direct to consumers
This paper examines the importance of two resources, namely a market orientation and an entrepreneurial orientation, in new product development and firm performance among direct and alternative marketers. Using a structural equation model and data from a 2013 survey, this paper models the effect of a market orientation and entrepreneurial orientation on current and expected performance for agricultural firms in Ontario, Canada. Our results show that a market orientation and entrepreneurial orientation are important factors in determining rates of product and marketing innovation. These findings further demonstrate that a market orientation is a powerful resource as it enables firms to become aware of opportunities to provide superior value for consumers, especially when operating in non-traditional markets.
