The paper assesses the degree of price cooperation between the main agricultural supply chain stakeholders in EU-27. The price transmission mechanism between producers and retailers is used for assessing cooperation. Cereals prices of EU-27 are used for the empirical analysis (January 1995 - April 2022). The price mechanism is modeled via the Co-Integrated Vector AutoRegressive (VAR) representation. The empirical analysis follows the usual drill of stationarity and co-integration tests followed by Granger Causality tests, Impulse Responses and Forecasts of Error Decomposition. The results show restricted cooperation between supply chain stakeholders.
