Abstract: This report examines the incidence of unfair trading practices (UTPs) in the dairy food supply chain. Drawing insights from data collected through a field survey among dairy farmers in five selected EU regions (France, Germany, Poland and Spain) we seek to understand the presence of UTPs across different stages of contract formulation and execution. The survey data were collected in 2017 and in total it includes 1248 observations. We identify a total of 29 UTPs across all different phases of contract development. Results show that 98% of surveyed farmers have reported at least one UTP.
