Poland Exporter Guide 2022
Poland is Central and Eastern Europe’s largest market for food and beverage products. With a population of nearly 38 million people, Poland is a large and growing market for U.S. food and agricultural products. In 2022, Poland’s economy was slowly returning to pre-pandemic levels. When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, it sent shock waves through the Polish economy. The subsequent imposition of sanctions by the European Union (EU) and Poland on Russia and Belarus and the disruption in trade have contributed to sharp increases in energy, fuel, and food prices. Poland’s total 2021 imports of food and agricultural products were valued at over $34 billion, with U.S. imports accounting for $566 million. U.S. products with strong sales potential include fish and seafood, distilled spirits, wine, tree nuts, dried fruit, and innovative food ingredient products.
