Abstract: This work is devoted to the topic "How large food manufacturers affect the country and its
population." Since the topic of the work is very wide, it was narrowed down to the area of
studying the influence of large manufacturers in the field of fast food and catering
establishments on the physical condition of the country's inhabitants. Physical condition in
the context of this work was measured in the BMI index.
The main assumption was that fast food and other large food manufacturers lead consumers
to overweight, that is, to the risk of health problems. The task of the work was to answer the
question of whether this hypothesis is indeed true, that is, whether the presence and number
of fast-food restaurants affect the average body mass index in the country.
The main aim of the thesis is to research the statistical correlation between the fast-food
sector and the health condition of the people expressed through the BMI index.
The research questions are the following:
1. What are the effects of large food manufacturers’ activities on the economy of the
country, in terms of its health factors (BMI index)?
2. Is the emergence of a large international food manufacturer beneficial for the
physical condition of the inhabitants of a country?
