With 38 mln inhabitants Poland is a big market and with increasing knowledge and demand for good quality food,  sales of organic products in Poland are steadily growing. Next to retail chains focused on eco certified products only, also shelfs of regular retail chains are being filled with products labeled with the EU green leaf. Also bottom up initiatives like bio trade fairs are more common and with well-developed delivery system in Poland also omni-channel solutions are very popular in this sector.

The Embassy in Warsaw together with the Polish Chamber for Organic Food prepared a report on the Polish organic production and current market for organic products in Poland. You can read the whole report here.
