Poland: Half a million tons of industrial apples to be withdrawn from market
The Minister, who was present at the International Food Fair at the Poznan International Fair, admitted that the situation on the industrial apple market is "dramatic."
"The government has decided that by working with some companies, it will withdraw half a million tons of industrial apples from the market. The purchase of these apples will start in many places in Poland from next Monday and the price paid for them will be approximately twice as high as that recorded in the market at the moment," he said.
He added that "there will be a statutory amendment extending the possibility of storing apple concentrate on state reserves, which is being prepared by the Minister of Energy. We will not leave Polish fruit producers with a problem," concluded the Minister. ■
