Polish vegetable export is growing despite the pandemic

The value of Polish vegetable exports in January-July this year. amounted to EUR 657 million compared to EUR 701 million in the corresponding period of 2019. This is a decrease of 5.8%.

The strongest negative impact on the export performance in this category was not caused by the pandemic, but by last year's drought, which reduced the export opportunities of the vegetable industry. The impact of the pandemic is visible in the export of processed vegetables, incl. in French fries exports which were hit hard by the HoReCa channel problems.

Analysts believe that, assuming the current trends, the value of Polish agri-food exports will most likely exceed EUR 33 billion in 2020, so it will set a new record, because after a temporary decline in April, the value of Polish agri-food exports is clearly growing annually. In the period January-August, it amounted to EUR 21.9 billion, which means an increase by 6% compared to the corresponding period of 2019.

Polish agri-food exports have so far remained immune to the effects of the pandemic, but its second wave remains an important risk factor.
