Abstract

At the beginning of 60s of the past century, the Italian State started an industrial process in the province of Foggia to improve the backwardness conditions, to reduce the heavy emigration, to promote entrepreneurial development and to value the local resources. Thus, in the Manfredonia’s town, two big chemical plants were built: one produced monosodic glutamate (Aijnomoto-Insud Company) and the other one urea, ammonia and caprolattame (Anic- Agricoltura S.p.A. and Chimica Daunia S.p.A. Company, joined in Enichem-Agricoltura S.p.A.). The Aijnomoto-Insud plant began working in the summer of the 1966 but, due to unclear reason, it stopped its production after ten years. According to the industrial development plan, this factory would have to use molasses as raw material, derived from local sugar-houses, and by-products resulting from process as fertilizers and feeds in agriculture. The aim was to create a link between agriculture and industry. This paper aims to describe, first of all, the process used by Aijnomoto-Insud and after, through historiceconomical events relative to those years, the reasons that led to its construction and shut-down. This fact represents a case of failure of industrial development policy carried out by the State in the Italian’s area.
