With the continuous improvement of trade theory, many domestic scholars pay attention to the relationship and mechanism between export and total factor productivity of enterprises, and carry out research on the total factor productivity of different industries based on the micro level. Based on the panel data of 158 A-share listed food processing enterprises from 2010 to 2020, this paper uses Levinsohn-Petrin method to measure the total factor productivity of sample enterprises, and adopts two-way fixed effect model to empironally test the influence of export, ownership, location and other factors on the total factor productivity of food processing enterprises. The results show that the increase of export volume of Chinese food processing enterprises can significantly promote the growth of total factor productivity of enterprises. From the perspective of enterprise ownership, private enterprises are more obviously promoted by export scale; From the perspective of location, the export behavior of food processing industry in eastern China can improve the total factor productivity of enterprises.
