Poland

Poland is the largest market for food and beverages in Central and Eastern Europe. With nearly 40 million consumers, Poland is an attractive export market for U.S. products. Its 2019 gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 4.1 percent, driven largely by strong domestic demand.  In 2019, Poland imported upwards of $26 billion in food and agriculture.  U.S. imports of these products were $512 million.  U.S. products with strong sales potential in Poland include fish and seafood, wine, tree nuts, dried fruit, highly processed and functional ingredients.

Polish consumers tend to view the U.S. products positively.  U.S. products imported into other European Union (EU) Member States are regularly re-exported to Poland without additional tariffs or regulatory requirements, besides required labeling in the Polish language.

The food processing and catering industries in Poland are increasingly interested in sourcing baking ingredients such as tree nuts, fish and seafood products, dried fruit, flavors and aromas, sweeteners, food additives, food colors, and enzymes.  The food processing industry is developing rapidly and is actively seeking high-quality inputs.
