Abstract

The study presents the importance of cereal production in Poland. A diagram of the supply chain in agribusiness was presented. A graphical presentation of the flow of raw materials and cereal products from primary producers (producers of raw materials and means of production for agriculture) to the consumer was developed. Trends of changes in the cereal sector and their products, which occur after economic transformation, are presented. It was found that the logistics chain for the supply of cereal and its products includes over one million cereal producers, tens of thousands of agri-food processing units, agricultural trade, wholesale and retail food trade. It must be flexible, adapting to new challenges. The condition for success in the conditions of dispersed production of raw materials is the efficiency of chain management as well as solidarity and mutual trust of participants.
