Abstract: In the conditions of crisis the dependency between of the food market has increased as a result of high level of saturation of food needs in Poland and of a limited ability to generate domestic and external demand. The aim of this article is to present the trends in adjustments of food supply to the reported demand in the post-crisis period. The conducted research shows that the processes of adjustment of supply to market demand include: changes in the production profile of the enterprises, rationalisation of behaviour in the sphere of production and resource management. Two branches have been selected for research: fat and dairy products, which are diverse in terms of supply and demand. The analysis covered the years 2008-2012, which is the period of the global crisis and the post-crisis situation. The study used a rich empirical material based on both the author’s own research and the secondary sources.
