Poland positions itself in second place among blueberry-producing and exporting countries

With an area of ​​12.000 hectares planted, Poland has positioned itself in second place among blueberry-producing and exporting countries in Europe. This acreage amounts to an increase of 8,5% compared to the previous year, so it can be concluded that blueberry cultivation in Poland is in full swing and increasing. Still, the vast majority of farms do not exceed 5 hectares, only 30% of them exceed 50 hectares, and the largest has an area of ​​600 hectares.

In the last season, the Polish industry produced 65.000 tons of blueberries, allocating 60.000 for the fresh fruit market. Not all of it was diverted to foreign markets since, in Poland, there is an important domestic market for national blueberries, reaching consumption per capita of 1 kg.

On an organizational level, despite the fragmentation of the industry, the Polish Blueberry Growers Association (SPBA) is made up of 110 growers, which are concentrated in Mazovia, Lodzkie, and Lubelskie, the three most important blueberry production regions, and in part of central and south-eastern Poland.
