Az elmúlt néhány évben a mezőgazdasági termékek ára erőteljesen ingadozott, rövid időn belül jelentős áremelkedés, illetve áresés ment végbe. Mindezek hatására az árarányok is változtak a vertikumon belül és az egyes termékpályák között, ami részletesebb vizsgálatokat tett szükségessé. Az árarányok elemzésének időszerűségét és jelentőségét indokolja az is, hogy az árarányok alapvetően befolyásolják a jövedelmezőséget. Az állati termékek és a takarmányok árarányát például több kutatóintézet, nemzetközi...

Darvasné Ördög Edit, Juhász Anikó, Tunyoginé Nechay Veronika and Wagner Hartmut (2009): The Impacts of the Crisis in the Foreign Trade of the Hungarian Food Economy in an International Context ( / 8) ISSN 1418-2122

Our study has analysed the sudden price explosion followed by the drop in the price of food products and the impacts of this price cycle on the foreign trade of the food economy. Due to the differences in their absolute sizes, a comparison of the balances of the different countries proved to be difficult; therefore we have introduced a new methodology. Firstly, with the help of the “food economy foreign trade profile” we have examined to what extent the product categories under examination (main...

Aliczki Katalin, Bartha Andrea, Garay Róbert, Nyárs Levente, Papp Gergely, Popp József, Potori Norbert and Vőneki Éva (2009): Status of the Main Animal Husbandry Sectors in Hungary. Agrárgazdasági Tanulmányok Agrárgazdasági Kutató Intézet, Budapest. 137 p. ISBN 978 963 491 533 1

This study has presented the prospects and competitive chances of the main product paths. The sector-related problems have been discussed along the product paths – dairy and beef cattle, pork and poultry. Analyses have started out from the side of buyers/consumers – that is demand – and concluded with the assessment of agricultural production. Namely, the realistic condition of the agricultural production cannot be revealed without knowledge of the food industrial and commercial phase relying on...

Györe Dániel, Juhász Anikó, Kartali János, Kürthy Gyöngyi, Kürti Andrea, Kőnig Gábor and Stauder Márta (2009): The Structure of the Hungarian Food Retail Trade, with Special Regard to the Marketing Possibilities of Small Producers. Agrárgazdasági Tanulmányok Agrárgazdasági Kutató Intézet, Budapest. 138 p. ISBN 978 963 491 532 4

Globalisation of the food retail trade started in the sixties of the 20th century (thus constituting the “youngest” element of the globalisation process), even if not ending, but at least “maturing” by the end of the eighties. Since that time, expansion of the retail trade chains in this region has been marginal, and even this, mainly at the cost of each other. In this part of the world, the globalisation of the food retail trade was result of a fairly long process, organically integrated into the...

This study assesses the standard, the differentiation and the solutions and peculiar types of rural subsistence and “crisis management” on the basis of the social and labour market characteristics of people living in the disadvantaged small regions. The analysis, on the one part, points out the national and regional trends, while revealing in details the socio-economic properties of the 33 most disadvantaged small regions, assessing, on the other part, the factors and tensions influencing the amount...

This part, covering the fruit and vegetable sector, provides an overall picture of the present situation of fruit and vegetable production, of the problems affecting the sector and...

Through application of a comprehensive system of requirements – called crosscompliance – the European Union strives to encourage agricultural producers to comply with the determined minimum requirements of the healthy food production, the protection of the living environment, the environment-friendly agricultural production, the welfare issues of livestock production and the food safety. In case of non-compliance with such requirements, farmers may expect sanctions, implying decrease of the direct...

Bojtárné Lukácsik Mónika, Felkai Beáta Olga, Györe Dániel, Kapronczai István, Kürti Andrea, Székelyné Raál Éva, Tóth Piroska and Vágó Szabolcs (2009): Ownership and Organisational Changes in Hungarian Food Industry. Agrárgazdasági Tanulmányok Agrárgazdasági Kutató Intézet, Budapest. 136 p. ISBN 978 963 491 531 7

The food industry played an important role in Hungary’s economy during the last ten to fifteen years. Following the EU accession, however, it has gradually lost in dynamism and got into a critical condition by today. Our study reveals the characteristics and the reasons of this process and outlines some development concepts that would be able to expedite the recovery.
