Agricultural products from Andalusia go to Poland

03.05.2021, Analytics

Extenda is committed to Poland as the gateway to Eastern Europe for processed food and agricultural products from Andalusia.


Extenda, the Trade Promotion Agency of Andalusia, has organized a new direct commercial mission to Poland focused on promoting transformed agri-food products which has been developed in digital format between April 12 and 16, with the aim of promoting the presence of Andalusian foods in the Polish market and to facilitate contact between the Andalusian business fabric and leading importers and distributors of this industry in the country, so that they can establish lasting contacts that benefit the internationalization of Andalusia which in the past year 2020 exported 266 million euros to Poland in food products and beverages.

This commercial action has included the holding of more than fifty B2B digital meetings between thirteen Polish importers and twelve community firms specialized in transformed agri-food products where they have been able to show and explain the characteristics of their portfolios, mostly from the olive industry, such as oil and olives, the wine industry, such as vinegar, and the meat and fishing industry, with cold meats and shellfish, as well as other agri-food sectors with ecological characteristics.

In addition, apart from high-quality conventional products, Poland appreciates natural products, certified organic products, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan products following the global trend of healthy consumption.

According to Extenda data, Poland represents a market of 38 million potential end customers as well as a good starting point for a business expansion in the Central and Eastern European region.

Besides, Slovakia and Ukraine presented positive growth rates in the import of processed Andalusian agri-food products in the past year 2020.

The Andalusian food processing sector has been represented on this occasion by twelve Andalusian companies. The organization of this action by Extenda-Andalucía Exportación e Inversión Extranjera will be co-financed with funds from the European Union through the P.O. FEDER of Andalusia 2014-2020 endowed with a community contribution of 80%, or any other European Program capable of co-financing this action.

Andalusia’s agri-food exports closed the year 2020 with a new export record, reaching 11,255 million euros, its best historical record since comparable data exist (1995), while contributing a trade surplus of 7,040 million as well to the regional economy.

In the specific case of Poland, agri-food exports to this market reached 266 million euros in 2020 remaining constant with respect to the previous year, with a slight decrease of 0.2%, and with a trade surplus of 207 million which reflects a coverage rate of 453%. These data position Andalusia as the second community in Spain as a supplier of agri-food products to Poland, with 22% of the national total which reaches 1,217 million.

The most imported chapters from Poland were fresh and frozen vegetables, with 171 million euros and 63% of the total; followed by fresh and frozen fruits, with 60 million and 22.6%; canned fruit and vegetables, with 20 million and 7.7%; olive oil, with 7.5 million and 2.8%; and, in fifth place, fish and mollusks, with 1.1 million and 0.4%.
