Abstract The imbalances in bargaining power between the contracting parties in the food supply chain have drawn much attention, also from policy makers. The European Commission is committed to facilitate the restructuring of the sector by encouraging the creation of voluntary agricultural producer organisations. DG Agriculture and Rural Development has launched a large study, “Support for Farmers' Cooperatives”, that will provide the background knowledge that will help farmers organise themselves in cooperatives as a tool to consolidate their market orientation and so generate a solid market income. In addition to agricultural producer organisations and cooperatives, there is also an interest in associations of producer organisations, which are promoted in the fruit and vegetable sector and –if current policy proposals succeed – and in the milk sector.
