Polish industry experts estimate that the new taxes will generate upwards of $1 billion in annual revenue for the Government of Poland (GOP). Trade sources report that retail prices for many popular beverages delivered after January 1, 2021 increased by over 45 percent. Retail sector sources also report that to avoid taxes on alcoholic beverages sold in bottles up to 300 ml or less, some Polish retailers now offer bottles of 350 ml by volume.
