Abstract: The paper examines the opportunities of networking in agrifood sector in Bulgaria through the perspectives of the new program period 2014-2020 and the potential contribution to rural development. Key measures are discussed focusing on support and motivation for establishing groups and associations of agricultural producers. Some behavioral, organizational and managerial issues are considered in connection to the historical development of agrifood sector in the country and possible approaches and ways of putting into practice network initiatives. The study puts a special attention on the importance of marketing co-operations considering the peculiarities of land and production in the country and market opportunities providing examples of good practices and recommendations for future development. The investigation is oriented towards some key problems in management in agrifood enterprises in connection to contemporary challenges to operation in conditions of increasing law requirements on European and national level and expanding processes in globalization concerning different spheres of economic and social life.
