As countries develop, agriculture becomes less important part of their economies. Low food demand is one of important barriers to the development of the agriculture. However, this barrier can be overcome by food processing, resulting in more diversified food offer on the market. Analyses presented in this paper reveal, that in the countries that accessed EU in 2004 one can observe decline of the importance of agriculture.
