Western agri-food companies, which have invested in Poland and/or in 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 laid on Poland and the Czech Republic. A typology of risks faced by those companies has been made up. Several risks are due to opportunistic behaviors inducing moral hazard and hold-up problems.
