To overcome the disadvantages special to their structures and continue their presence by making a difference in a rapidly changing environment, SMEs especially have to realize innovation.

For this reason, enterprise outputs that effect innovation activities such as number of employees, export revenues, advertising expenses, research and development (R&D) expenses, patent expenses, enterprise age and total number of foreign partnerships were collected from SME owners/managers and food engineers by survey method.
