Languages of publication
The article brought closer to the status and directions of agricultural cooperatives in selected Member States of the European Union, as well as in other European countries. This information may be useful in the modernization of the agricultural co-operative structures and determine the direction of its development in Poland. In the countries of the “EU-15” producer groups - industry cooperatives, are an essential link in the organized structure of the market for agricultural products, created with producers. However, the state of organization of the agricultural producers in Poland is still insufficient. We can observe the steady growth of interest in the management of farmers’ co-operative form. Mainly pig producers, grain and oilseeds, milk and poultry producers choose this form of cooperation. There are no regional trade and industry groups, particularly unions, like the well-organized agriculture in the countries of Western Europe. It would be of interest to farmers’ ability to organize themselves in associations to represent their interests and strengthen its position in the markets for both local and global.
