The worsening economic situation means Poles are more thrifty when it comes to food purchases, reported Rzeczpospolita. Nearly 20% of household spending in Poland goes on food and alcoholic beverages, according to Eurostat data. Only four EU countries have larger shares in that equation: Bulgaria, Lithuania, Latvia and Romania. The EU average is 15.3%. In total, Poles spent zł.226 billion on food in 2011, according to PMR.
