Polish food exports in 2012 may have amounted to €16.7–17 billion, €2 billion more than in 2011, according to Poland's Institute of Agricultural and Food Economics. Experts quoted by Rzeczpospolita expect the value to keep growing in 2013 but at a slower pace. Germany is the largest importer of Polish food with a 21 percent share, followed by the UK (7.2 percent) and Russia (6.2 percent).
Recently, several controversies regarding the quality of Polish food have arisen in Europe. However, Andrzej Gantner from the Polish Federation of Food Industry stressed that the number of irregularities in Poland is not higher than in other countries. Experts told the newspaper that the controversies may affect exports only in the short term.
