Poland: Food Service – Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Post sources estimate that Poland’s hotel, restaurant and institutional (HRI) sectors were valued at over $7 billion in 2017, a 6 percent increase over 2016. The number of Polish catering businesses reached over 70,000 in 2017. International chains are well established in the quick-service segment. Poland’s strategic location in the middle of Europe, and its affordable and high-quality hospitality and culinary options make it an increasingly popular destination for international conferences, banquets, trade shows and related activities. In 2017, 2,540 hotels operated in Poland, a 3 percent increase over 2016. Total 2017 food, beverage and agricultural imports were valued at $22 billion, of which $422 million was sourced from the United States. U.S. products have strong potential in the Polish HRI market, particularly fish and seafood, tree and groundnuts, wine, distilled spirits, dried fruit and innovative food processing ingredients.
