Poland Tastes Good

Poland showcasing its food gems at AB7 expo!

Poland has a vibrant and sophisticated food-beverage sector that will be promoting its diversity, quality and affordability to visitors and trade buyers at the AB7 Expo, that starts Sunday 24 June at Gallagher Estate, Midrand.

Poland, at the crossing of Europe’s major trade routes, is a meeting point for multiple cultures and nationalities. Thus, its culinary heritage is diverse and rich, and while its roots may be ancient, it boasts world-class producers whose modern facilities meet the highest safety and quality standards.

“Years of experience have come to fruition today, as consumers look for natural and traditional products that offer the highest quality, unforgettable taste and smell,” says Agnieszka Chudzik of the Polish Agricultural Market Agency.

“The attraction of Polish agrifood products also lies in the ability of vendors to quickly adapt their offering to the needs of their customers, even the most demanding ones.

“Growing popularity is enjoyed by organic products, ‘superfoods’ or products that offer additional healthy benefits, and products that are identified as natural and authentic – all of which, Poland can offer in abundance.

“We invite visitors and buyers to try the best Polish agrifoods from leading Polish food exporters, and sample traditional Polish dishes and must-try classics prepared by some of the best chefs from Poland,” she adds.

Some Polish food insights:

  • Poland is one of the largest and most modern European producers of dairy products, such as cheeses and cheese curds, powdered milk and butter. Along with fruit juices made of apples, cherries, black currant, strawberries and choke berries – these are the flagship stars of Polish exports.
  • Poland is also one of the leading EU producers of fruit and vegetables, mostly apples, currants, raspberries, chokeberries, blueberries, mushrooms and carrots.
  • Poland, in fact, is the European leader in the production and exports of frozen fruit and vegetables, with over 60% of production shipped to export markets.
  • Preserves made of fruit and forest mushrooms, popular and valued both by domestic and foreign consumers, are renowned Polish specialities.
  • Other top products on Poland’s export list include wonderful processed fish, poultry, pork and beef products.
  • Poland is the largest EU poultry producer, with some 30% destined for export. Chicken meat is the biggest export, then turkey and other kinds of poultry such as duck and goose.
  • Pierogi (dumplings) are the most popular Polish food at home and abroad. They can be eaten boiled, baked, fried, sweet or salty, in many flavours and with different fillings. Summer versions are filled with fruit like bilberries, strawberries and sour cherries.
  • Poland also has its own local specialties which are now appreciated, like dairy, as  superfoods: gluten-free millet, buckwheat, cranberries, blueberries, bilberries and chokeberries, sauerkraut, beetroot and flax seeds.

Polish food specialties are promoted in foreign markets under the slogan “Poland Tastes Good”, building a uniform promotional message that resonates with its burgeoning foreign customers.

The Polish Agricultural Market Agency will be participating at the Africa Big 7 Tradeshow, 24-26 June 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand.

It will be promoting an extensive array of Polish food products and producers – and invites potential partners and buyers to visit the Polish pavilion, Stand: M19, Hall 3.
