Brexit and export of Polish food to the UK

From 1 October, the UK government is introducing new border checks on animal and plant products; these will make export of food from Poland to the UK more complicated. This webinar, held in Polish for Polish food exporters, looked at what the new border checks would mean, and how to prepare for them. Michael Dembinski, the BPCC’s chief adviser, opened the meeting saying that for the most determined exporters, prepared to deal with all the new paperwork, there would be many new opportunities. As exports from western European trade partners falter, more and more companies are withdrawing from the UK market, and so gaps appear that Polish firms could enter. Having the right strategy and marketing plans is key, he said.

International Oktoberfest returns to Wrocław

After a break last year for the pandemic, Wrocław’s International Oktoberfest made its return on 10 September 2021. Back for the 16th time, it was held this year for sanitary reasons in the fresh-air surroundings of the Toya Golf and Country Club, a little way north of the city. The event was organised by the BPCC, the Polish-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Poland) and the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce. Traditionally, the International Oktoberfest draws the largest business crowd from across the region, but this year, numbers were limited because of Covid-19. Nevertheless, after a year’s absence, it was good to meet in person and the event was enjoyed by all.
