In our research we analyse the Hungarian Mangalica chain using Structure-Conduct- Performance (SCP) paradigm. We analysed the chain actors with two different analytical methods. The breeders, processors and traders were examined by in-depth interviews based on the SCP paradigm, and using data from National Association of Mangalica Breeders (122 members with more than 7300 sows in 2013). The aim of our secondary research during the examination of the chain structure was to determine the stock and geographical concentration of mangalica sector. The indicators used were as follows: Concentration Ratio, Lorenz-curve, Gini-coefficient, Herfindahl-Hirschman-index. Studying the years between 2000 and 2012, the concentration analysis demonstrated that in the mangalica sector there was not such a significant concentration than in the other agricultural sectors, but the fragmentation of this segment was also observed. This was due to the effect of State aid payments for the native breeds. In the last part of the research we compiled the segments of Mangalitza production path and distribution channels in Hungary in 2013.
