In no other industry would firms resort to such idiosyncratic ideas, ideas

A. as('as' cannot give examples, can only compare) milking their best suppliers dry, as would the western retail-food sector do.- Firms vs the western retail-food sector is not the comparison we are aiming for. We need 'no other industries' vs 'retail-food sector'

B. such as milking their best suppliers dry, as would the retail-food sector in the west.- Firms vs the western retail-food sector

C. as milking their best suppliers dry, as the retail-food sector in the west does. - As cannot give examples, can only compare clauses

D. such as milking their best suppliers dry, as the retail-food sector of the west. - 'in no other industry'(prepositional phrase) vs 'the retail-food sector' (noun phrase)

E. such as milking their best suppliers dry, as in the retail-food sector of the west - Correct, prepositional phrase (in no other industry) vs prepositional phrase ( in the retail-food sector)

I am confused, why can't we compare one firm with other firm as done in option B? It removes the ambiguity by not using the ellipsis

The question is very similar to this official question.

In option B, we are comparing "In no other industry" with "would the retail-food".
