    This article intends to provide an analysis of evolving relations in the food chain and their impacts upon small farmers based on the research conducted in four countries in the framework of Regoverning Markets (RM) Project. Each country represents a specific path and level of development. Both Hungary and Poland are quite advanced in the concentration of the retail sector and food processing, while Bulgaria and Russia are less advanced in changing the vertical structure of food production. The results of research conducted in four countries are presented here in a shortened version. Conclusions in this summary reflect mainly the information gathered in the four countries and have to be treated with caution regarding the rest of the region.
