Poland's deputy prime minister and agriculture minister has said that the whole European Union should be involved in helping Kyiv with grain exports to alleviate the burden taken in this respect by the countries neighbouring Ukraine.
The Polish agriculture minister has said that food prices will not fall next year, and that the goal is not to let them grow too quickly.
Poland's farmer subsidies have already reached the European level or even slightly exceeded the European average, the leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party has said.
Poland has exported over 2 million tonnes of Ukrainian grain since Russia invaded Ukraine last February, Poland's agriculture minister said on Thursday.
Sixty percent of the five million tonnes of wasted food in Poland annually is directly attributable to consumers, the country’s agriculture minister indicated on Tuesday.
The director-general of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has said that Poland has become one of the most important agricultural producers.
Poland's food supply is safe despite the Russia-Ukraine war because Poland, as part of Europe, produces more than it needs, the Polish agriculture minister said on Thursday.
Poland will send food aid to Ukraine through charity organisations and government sources, Henryk Kowalczyk the agriculture minister, told PAP on Tuesday following a telephone conversation with the agriculture minister of Ukraine.
Poland could gain permission from the European Commission (EC) to introduce a temporary zero-VAT rate on food items, the Polish agriculture minister said on Friday.
Total taxes in Poland will be clearly lower after the government's New Deal reform package, but high-earners will start paying more, said the head of the lower house's Public Finance Committee.
