    Foreign retailers entering the market can be considered as an important driver of structural changes in the transition countries agribusiness. In this context, the authors have made the assessment of the role of foreign retailers for the agribusiness of Ukraine as the 'third-wave' country in the retail internationalization process. The issues, that raise interest in this respect, are allocated in five blocks. First of all, the authors have estimated the level of relevance of verticalization issues for agribusiness players in Ukraine. It has been determined that the entities in the field of agri-business cooperation face difficulties caused by the unfavorable institutional environment. The issues of coordination in the supply of high quality products have been analyzed. The inquiries into the constraints on verticalization have been made. In general, the article provides the evidence of how the introduction of management concepts by multinational retailers gives rise to improvements in the Ukrainian agribusiness.
