An important feature of development of food industry in the last years is a growing share of production in big industrial plants. It happens so mainly, because of the concentrations processes that have place in the food industry. The biggest concentrations have been taking place in meat, milk and cereals processing industry. A major role in this industry plays transnational corporations which take control over the Polish firms. Acquisitions by foreign investors have had various influences on the overtaken firms.
