Alert! Polish Farmers Protest since mid January
Do take a moment to read and act on the below..
Here in Poland the battle to save Polish farmland from corporate
buy-outs’ continues. But that’s not all the Polish farmers are up against…See
link to film below. Tractors have been blockading government institutions from
Regulations that the Warsaw government has imposed over the years have made it
virtually impossible to sell farm processed foods to local shops, schools or
private individuals. The only way farmers can conform with the hygiene and
sanitary regulations imposed from above, is by carrying out their simple
processing tasks in specially designed and equipped buildings that none can
afford to build or to adapt.. except the very large producers supplying the food
industry and supermarkets. Yes, that’s right – it’s all about destroying the
competition – which in this case is the small and medium sized independent
family farms that produce the best foods!
There are still one and a half million such farms in Poland!
ICPPC is supporting the protesting farmers to highlight this grossly unfair
treatment of all who wish to provide fine quality, flavourful and ‘real’
farmhouse-foods in their own localities.
You too can be part of this vital protest…
Join in – by sending a brief letter in support of the farmers to Prime Minister
Tusk urging him to change the regulations so that family farmers can sell their
products locally! And send a copy of your letter to us here at ICPPC –
