Abstract

This paper analyses the history of de Spanish biscuit industry from the end of de the 18th century to the Civil War, with a special attention to the institutional and technological questions as well as the changes in the location factors. Biscuit industry, even its small size and the domain of the family firms, was one of the most dynamic branches of the Spanish food industry, thanks to its technical progress and the changes suffered in the organization and direction of its firms and in the promotion of its products. This is the thesis I maintain in this essay.
