Abstract


The purpose of the article is to analyze the efficiency of groundnut processing units using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method. The study was carried out in the district of Covè, a district in central Benin where groundnut processing agribusiness is quite developed. Data were collected from 120 groundnut processing units. The results obtained show that 30% of the processing units studied are in a situation of increasing return to scale, 35% in a situation of constant returns to scale and the rest is 35% in a situation of Decreasing return to scale.

Abstract: (french)


L’objectif de l’article est d'analyser l'efficacité des unités de transformation de l’arachide en utilisant la méthode Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). L’étude a été menée dans la Commune de Covè, une localité du Centre du Bénin où l’artisanat agroalimentaire à base de l’arachide est assez développé. Les données ont été collectées sur les comptes d’exploitation de 120 unités de transformation de l’arachide en huile et en galettes communément appelées kluiklui. Les résultats obtenus montrent que 30% des unités de transformation étudiées se trouvent dans une situation d’économies d’échelle, 35% dans une situation de rendements d’échelle constants et le reste soit 35% dans une situation de déséconomies d’échelle.
