Western agri-food companies, which have invested in Poland or/and the Czech Republic, have been contacted in order to assess those acquisitions from the EU acquirers' standpoint: risks that are faced, perspectives of risk management and improvement. Emphasis is being put on Poland and the Czech Republic. A typology of risks faced by those companies is set up. Several risks arise from opportunistic behavior inducing moral hazard and hold-up problems.
