9 billion euros is roughly how much Poland will spend to upgrade its rail system ahead of the Euro 2012 soccer championships it will host together with Ukraine. Funds will be used to buy new trains and modernize railroad tracks and stations, according to infrastructure minister Cezary Grabarczyk.

The smell of fresh bread and sweet treats wafted through pavilion number 5 at the Polagra food fair in Poznań Sept. 15-18, where the baking and confectionery industries displayed their products and services. Two-person teams of confectioners representing the best hotels, restaurants and confectioneries competed in the Second Polish Confectionery Championships, sculpting masterpieces in chocolate and caramel.

In a nearby pavilion, chefs were busy recommending all sorts of roasted delicacies, while cheeses, cold and roasted meats and salads were also on show. There were lots of onlookers too, who could taste the delicacies on display.

During the Culinary Cup of Poland, an international jury assessed chefs who prepared main courses and desserts. The Polagra-Food fair also included the first Coffee Olympics for coffee shop chains in which contestants got to test their theoretical and practical expertise in coffee making.

The Polagra-Food International Trade Fair for Food and Catering Products was held alongside the Taropak International Packaging Technology and Logistics Exhibition, featuring packaging, packing machines and equipment for the production of packaging materials as well as machines used in the transportation and storage of goods in warehouses. The exhibition was attended by almost 800 businesses from 31 countries, including almost 300 companies from abroad.
