Abstract

In this note the production of fresh pasta in a small-sized firm has been chosen as an illustrative example in order to apply a costing model which is consistent with LCA, because it shares a similar Input-Output computational structure. The first section provides some methodological background and motivation. Section 2.1 briefly describes the food production system, points out what kind of data is required, and how it should be arranged using matrices, assuming in particular that complex information systems are not in place. Section 2.2 discusses the outcomes that are relevant for the firm’s management and that can be obtained by calculating the resources consumption, the environmental aspects and the manufacturing costs associated with a typical food production system, using one procedure. Section 2.3 outlines a possible integration and combination of the obtained information with LCA. Finally, Section 3 provides some concluding remarks
