Poland is one of the largest agri-food industry producers in Central and Eastern Europe. In 2021, over 1270 companies operated in this sector, producing, and exporting goods valued at over U.S. $37 billion. The food processing industry accounted for 5 percent of Poland’s total $674 billion gross domestic product (GDP). Strong growth in the Polish food processing sector in 2021 was stimulated by internal demand and export. The most important segments in value terms were meat, dairy, beverage, confectionary, bakery, and horticultural processing. 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. ingredients with strong sales potential include fish (salmon and pollock) and seafood, tree nuts, dried fruit, highly processed, and functional ingredients.
