|dc.description.abstract||Fruit Processing Industries (FPIs) in East Java, are a key part of agroindustrial
activities there. In terms of economic development, these strongly contribute to creating
employment opportunities and higher income. In relation to agroindustry, three basic
components in any agroindustrial system are procurement of raw material, processing
and marketing. How to encourage fruit processing, as an agroindustrial activity and
area potential, has become a vital issue and a major priority for area development in
East Java. Understanding the problems in FPIs would give support to success cases.
Based on a sample survey of five districts in East Java province (Banyuwangi, Jember,
Lumajang, Probolinggo and Malang), this paper reviews controlling factors, based on
three basic components of the agroindustrial system. The paper concludes that FPIs are
technological problems showed a strong relationship with FPIs' overall performance.
Achievement of technology tends to be a determinant factor in processing activities.
Understanding these factors can aid policy makers of FPIs in designing and
implementing appropriate programs.||en_US
