One of the most important objectives of the innovation policy of both developed and developing countries is the development of national and regional innovation systems. These are institutions and skills that aim to introduce innovations increasing competitiveness of the economy and improving the quality of life in society. Maintaining economic growth based on building a knowledge-based economy requires increasing the economic potential, mainly through increasing productivity and innovation. What is important in creating the innovative potential of the Polish economy is the fact that the large size of the Polish market, combined with the low level of openness to trade isolates domestic companies from their international competition. Domestic markets products and services are among the least liberalized in the EU and OECD. Polish companies may be sufficiently profitable in the domestic market, and therefore the pressure to compete with their counterparts abroad through investments in innovation and R&D, is lower. An important role in building an innovative economy is played by the business environment institutions providing specialized services to support the development of enterprises. Between these entities that are a part of the entrepreneurship support system in Poland, there are numerous organizational and competence links. The aim of this study is to determine the course of action for activities undertaken in the framework of innovation policy, which are aimed at creating system support for the development of the agri-food sector. The idea behind the study was to verify the hypothesis that the availability of the system services affects the increase of competitiveness, profitability, or viability and potential of the agri-food sector. The object of the study was a pilot service in the field of marketing and sales of products for micro and small companies in the agri-food processing industry. It was carried out based on the system project of the Polish Agency for the Development of Entrepreneurship (PARP), “Providing enterprises with access to new services of the National Service Network (KSU),” financed under Sub-measure 2.2.1 of the Operational Programme Human Capital 2007-2013.
