Examines the factors which affect staff motivation and satisfaction in small food businesses. Explores previous theories of motivation. Thirty-eight small food processing and manufacturing companies in Scotland formed the sample. Interviews and open-ended semistructured questionnaires were employed in the research. Results emphasise the importance of the management style of the owner/manager particularly when it comes to factors such as ``lack of appreciation'', ``poor communication'' and ``training''.
