Polish consumers prefer domestic fruit and veg

Most Poles prefer to buy domestic fruit and vegetables, even when they are more expensive. It's not just consumer patriotism; Poles believe that domestic strawberries or apples are simply tastier than foreign ones. 

This has been the conclusion of a poll carried out at the request of Wirtualna Polska, in which 64 percent of respondents said that it is important for them to know the country of origin of the crops they buy, while this didn't matter for another 28 percent.

Almost the same number of people (60%) answered that they preferred to buy vegetables and fruits from Poland, even if they were more expensive than foreign ones. Only 19 percent of people answered "No" to this question.

One of the reasons, if not the main one, of such choices may be the belief that domestic strawberries, apples, cucumbers or tomatoes are simply healthier and tastier. This opinion is shared by 68 percent of respondents.

According to the president of the National Union of Fruit and Vegetable Producer Groups, Witold Boguta, Poles are more and more often guided by consumer patriotism.

"This is a positive trend for us, which has been developing for some time. In other countries, it is an everyday reality that you buy, respect and appreciate products produced in your own country," said Boguta.

The President of KZGPOiW argues that the results of the survey and the opinion on the quality of domestic products, common among Poles, are confirmed in reality.

"Polish vegetables and fruits are tastier and safer, since they are produced in unpolluted environments, mainly when it comes to the soil. In other countries, this is not always the case," argues Boguta.

The president of the union believes that such survey results are a result of the good practices of Polish growers.
