Polish poultry exports rose by 19 percent in 2012 according to Agricultural Market Agency (ARR). According to the latest estimates, Poland exported some 600,000 metric tons of poultry to the EU countries, while the entire poultry exports was 615,000 tons (19 percent higher than in 2011).
Polish poultry has been popular in the EU mostly due to its competitive prices. It is relatively cheaper than beef and pork.
ARR also reports that beef exports decreased slightly (by 3 percent). Up to 80 percent of beef produced in Poland is exported – mainly to EU countries. The agency explained that exports have fallen because the European Commission no longer subsidizes exports outside of the EU.
Moreover, ever since Turkey raised customs duties for beef produced in the EU, producers stopped exporting it due to the higher costs.
