Abstract

The author of this paper intends to compare two industrial territories from western France: Chateau-Renault and Surgères. Chateau-Renault is a tanning center, and the city of Surgères houses a vast dairy. The industries of both areas deal with products of animal origins deriving from agriculture. They could be named “animal industries”. Besides, both areas are located in the west of France, where industrialization lagged behind the rest of the country. The author will study the mechanism at work behind the development of those industries in a region with very little industry overall. The relationship between local resources, notably agriculture, and the development of a specific form of industrialization are central to the emergence of those animal industries.
