Recent research on dairy sector restructuring in Poland has been concentrated mainly on analysis conducted from the macro-level perspective, thus, although providing valuable insights, have come up with at most partial answer to the problem of the farm-level impact of supply chain restructuring More specifically, none of them has quantitatively analysed determinants of market channel choices of dairy farmers in Poland. They have not explored either the impact of market channel choice on farms’ financial situation. The main objective of the present research is to fill this gap. Furthermore, since there have been growing concerns related to potential negative impact that supply chain modernisation may have on small farmers’ access to the market, and thus on rural poverty, the analysis attempts to address the issue of smaller producers’ marginalisation.
