Abstract: A mail survey is used to assemble a unique data set comprised of 109 firms' statements concerning policy in the Danish food industry. The survey response rate is 16% and features firms from all major sectors of the Danish food industry and from all regions of Denmark. The report presents the raw data and relates the development and implementation of the survey. Lessons learned in the survey process are presented, as well as estimates of the cost of the whole procedure. Danish firms do not define problems in food chain co-ordination in the way anticipated by researchers, and express a negative view of the effectiveness of policy targeted at solving such problems. A large number of Danish firms claim not to know the financial impacts of specific legislative and regulatory policies. The largest number of firms claimed that food safety, animal welfare and policies requiring information provision had negative financial impacts. Firms' strategic and long term views focused on dissatisfaction with "regulation". Firms' views of future success focused on subject matter that is not generally addressed by current policies.
