Poland is a fantastic food & drink market

Poland as a food market is characterised by changing consumer habits, a healthy regard for innovation and a demand for imported foods. Food and beverage imports total roughly $18 billion annually, hinting at the big wins and is quickly becoming the Central European export nation of choice for international companies.

Poland is the largest economy in Central and Eastern Europe, with a GDP of $524 billion, making it sixth biggest in the EU too. Growth rates are expected to average between 2.5% and 2.9% over the next two years as well. Indeed, over the past decade Poland’s GDP has more than doubled.

Poland proved resilient to the effects of the 2009 global economic slowdown. Since 2008, the nation has enjoyed cumulative GDP growth of 19% demonstrating Poland’s solid economic fundamentals and stability.

A favourable location, east of Germany, provides easy access to Russia as well as South-Eastern Europe – ideal for setting up European-wide distribution networks.

Polish consumers are increasingly internationally minded, with more Poles travelling abroad than ever before. A growing taste for international cuisines, tastes and foods is spreading across Poland – making WorldFood Warsaw a vital stop for buyers looking to import overseas produce to satiate Poles’ increasingly exotic appetites. 

What’s more, roughly two thirds of all new food and beverage product launches in 2015 in Central Europe happened in Poland. Essentially, Poland is the region’s food innovation capital and is populated by a food-savvy people who desire quality.
