RUSSIAN FOOD SYSTEM IN TRANSITION

The evolution of vertical coordination systems and pricing mechanisms in the Russian food system are summarized. The activities in the stages of the food vertical chain during the command economy period were coordinated administratively similar to an integrated firm. Coordination in the food chain has evolved from mostly vertical expansion through quasi integration to mostly vertical mergers, as the Russian economy has started to move toward a more market oriented system. The unique characteristics of the exchange system and the structural nature of agriculture in the potential importing country are important considerations to take into account by exporting agribusiness firms.
