This paper aims to investigate the transmission of beef meat prices along the supply chain in Lithuania. A set of econometric techniques allows studying relationships between prices on the farm and at the retail store level during the period from 2010 to 2017. The Johansen co-integration test confirms the presence of the long-run co-movement of prices on upstream and downstream levels of the beef meat supply chain. In the short-run, the price on the farm Granger causes the development of prices on the downstream level and findings suggest an evidence of the price-setting leadership on the upstream level. The error correction model shows the adjustment of the analysed prices towards the equilibrium with a rate of speed 25%.
