The study assesses the level of selected factors and their impact on the productivity of the food industry against the background of manufacturing in the years 1995–2011. The influence of wages, investment, innovation and technical infrastructure on labor productivity in manufacturing and food industries was observed. The impact of investment and innovation on total productivity, as well as investment in capital productivity and innovation on labor productivity in manufacturing was revealed (correlation coefficients were high and statistically significant). The coefficients of determination in most of these cases showed a good fit of regression models to empirical data. The level of productivity factors was generally lower in the food industry than in manufacturing. However, there was an increase in investment activity and innovation and technical equipment working in the food industry during the Polish accession to the EU. However, to continue productivity growth of the food industry in the long term, it will be necessary to make non-technological innovation.
