The value of the Polish food-export industry could exceed EUR 25 billion, Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki said.
In the first three months of the year, exports of Polish food expanded by 5.5 percent, rising 20 percent above the exports over the same period last year.
Sawicki told the third Polish Food Export Forum that if this growth continued at the current pace, in 2015, the value of exports could exceed EUR 25 billion, but it is more likely to hover around the EUR 23 billion mark.
Creating products of the highest quality, it is necessary to be extremely diligent in examining the needs of the EU market and the major export markets outside Europe.
“In addition, the offer addressed to foreign partners should be consolidated, not dispersed. The fewer disputes between Polish exporters on foreign soil, the better the situation for all,” Minister Sawicki said. (rg)
