Abstract: Throughout the European Union, local producers have a significant role, which is increasingly becoming more aware of consumers, and their products are increasingly demanding. This trend can be seen especially in more developed Western European countries. The current situation in Slovakia in the area of production and processing of local products is that retail chains offer low sales prices to producers, which compensate for the quantity of product. In this situation, there is a problem where this business relationship with the local producer is for only cover the costs with minimum profit for producers. We assume that the current situation will be local farmers to seek new opportunities to sell products. The short food supply chain is one of the alternatives of the long-globalized food chain. Sale of local products that producers distribute as soon as possible in full quality, freshness, and signs of local origin are the future sale of local products with value added. The aim of the paper is to review of the literature and best-case studies selected from the European Union countries in which the developed food distribution system for short food supply chain has been established. To achieve the main goal, we use comparative methods to compare case studies in different countries and also the deductive methods based on which we deduce conclusions. Based on the review of scientific papers evaluate application and success of short food supply chain in the Slovak market. In conclusion, identify the possibilities of applying these successful cases to the local producers in Slovak market.
