We will not stand still and consider the process of destroying the production of heat-loving vegetables in PolandWhich is made through the reckless and uncontrolled practice of offering a product from abroad during the season in the country. All of us – farmers, consumers and retail chains – must take care of Polish vegetable production, because only it guarantees our food security – appeals to the Association of Pepper Producers of the Republic of Poland.

Trade inspections have shown that situations arise systematically in chain storesWhere the vegetable notice contains false information about its geographical origin.
