Transmission of Prices Between Individual Links in the Production and Distribution Channel of Cereals and Cereal Products of Primary and Secondary Processing in Poland in the years 2004–2018

Anna Olszańska , Martin Kral , Magdalena Luboińska


The study analyzed data on an exemplary primary wheat processing product - Poznanska flour and then a product of secondary processing (plain mixed bread). The collected data refer to the years 2004-2019. The differences between the prices of cereal production and prices as well as the primary processing level and the prices of the secondary processing product are systematically increasing. At the first two levels, prices fluctuated quite significantly. The producers and the sellers of bread, during periods of significant decreases in cereal procurement price and the producer's price for flour, usually kept their prices at a similar level, while periods of rising prices for cereals and flour were used for significant price increases. Bread producers had a dominant position at individual production stages in the analyzed years. Their share in the final price was always the largest and most stable, and the price growth achieved by them was the highest. The strongest relationships were found between the average procurement prices of wheat and the selling prices of flour producers.
