Polish poultry sector prepares "the siege" of Cuba

Polish poultry exporters are targeting Cuba as their next important market in Central America. According to Dariusz Goszczynski, Director General of KRD-IG, the Cuban market has the potential to absorb large volumes of Polish poultry products. A Cuban delegation is expected to visit Poland this week and Mr. Goszczynski expressed his hope to increase the exports to this market. "In 2019, we exported over 22,000 tons of poultry to Cuba. The potential of this market is huge. I believe that the visit of the Cuban delegation will increase exports in 2020," said Dariusz Goszczynski.

Poland is the largest poultry producer in the EU and ranks 3 in the world's top of poultry exporters. Last year's production was close to 3 million tonnes of poultry supported by strong demand from the EU and other international markets. Nevertheless, during the first two months of 2020, poultry exports have been impacted by the ongoing bird flu outbreak in Poland.
