Sales growth in Poland for tree nuts, seeds and trail mix achieved five percent in 2017, the strongest year-on-year growth of all sweet and savory snack foods in the market. Much of this growth can be attributed to increasingly health-conscious consumers and a preference for convenience foods which can be consumed "on the go." Dried fruits and tree nuts are also widely used in traditional baking. U.S. tree nuts maintain the largest share by country of origin in the Polish market, at nearly 25 percent. U.S. almonds and pistachios dominate the Polish market. The most popular dried fruits in Poland are raisins, cranberries, prunes, dates, apricots, figs, apples and pears. Popularity of U.S. dried cranberries and prunes continue to grow due to successful Cooperator promotional activities.
