Within this thesis corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities of companies in the Austrian food industry were analyzed. The qualitative content analysis was used to analyze 82 websites regarding the CSR activities of companies within the Austrian food industry. The results underline that the structured reprocessing of CSR activities such as sustainability reports are not widely-used in the food industry. However, usually companies do publish facts about their CSR activities in an unstructured way. Referring to the triple-bottom-line companies act primarily within the economic and social field of CSR. Ecology seems to be of minor importance for companies. The primarily addressed stakeholder groups are employees, suppliers, customers, the society at large, shareholder and the government. Further CSR activities relate to internal optimization concerning location, logistics, and strategic goals.
