Award Goes to Polish Food
March 1, 2013
We decided to grant our award to Polish food in appreciation of its exceptional taste and quality. While saying bon appétit to consumers, we want to highlight the fact that in 2012 Poland’s food exports exceeded 16 billion euros and were three times higher than in 2004 when Poland joined the European Union.
Poland recorded a surplus of 3.3 billion euros in the trade of food in 2012—higher than in any other sector. This is undoubtedly a joint success for producers and exporters, and it is them that we want to congratulate above all. Top Polish food exports include meat, milk, cereals, vegetables, fruit, juices, candy, alcohol, and a long list of other items. Europeans—and not only those from EU countries—have come to appreciate Polish produce. But Polish food also reigns supreme on tables further afield.
The award for Polish food proves that the political and economic problems swirling around us cannot overshadow the very essence of our existence—being able to enjoy and taste life.
