group of agricultural producers, market


The research study describes an analysis of the management efficiency of an enterprise focused on egg production. The enterprise runs market cooperation as a group of agricultural producers. The aim of the work was to analyse the functioning of agricultural producers groups in Poland in terms of formal, legal and production conditions. A detailed analysis included a group focused on the production of table eggs, based in the Malopolskie province.
