If there are no designated ports – not only in Poland, but throughout Europe – if there are no designated transit channels, there is no chance of exporting this grain from Poland – said PSL leader Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz in the “Kampania #BezKitu” program, referring to to Ukrainian grain, which reached our country in large quantities. He recalled that last year the PSL proposed a law introducing deposits for grain entering the market, but so far it is “in the freezer” of the Sejm.

He spoke about the grain crisis related to the huge import of Ukrainian grain to Poland in Friday’s “Kampania #BezKitu” Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz, president of the Polish People’s Party. As he assessed, “food security is at risk, it has been compromised and this situation has been going on not for weeks, but for months.”

Tusk warned, Kaczyński assured that Ukrainian grain is not a threat. “No one will lose”

– In June, July last year we reported this problem – he pointed out. He reminded that PSL reported “an act on the protection of Polish agriculture, introducing a deposit for grain entering Poland”, as well as for other agri-food products. ‘Because, lest we miss it, it’s not just about grain. It’s about honey, nuts, fruit, chicken, eggs – the head of the People’s Party enumerated.

Kosiniak-Kamysz: food security is at riskTVN24

President of PSL about the unknown quality of Ukrainian products

Kosiniak-Kamysz emphasized that these products reached Poland in an “uncontrolled way” and their origin, method of production and quality are unknown.

European Union introduces certain standards so that we, as consumers, know that we eat good quality food, so that we have proven food – he said.

He added that Ukrainian products and food were not intended for the EU market. – The one that came from Ukraine, after all, it was supposed to go to North Africa so that there would be no famine there. It is very important that there is not another wave of migration from North Africa. But she didn’t get there, she stayed in Poland – he noted.

– It seems to us in this analysis, which our experts make, that the poultry market in particular is at risk – continued the TVN24 guest. According to him, “the quality of the poultry itself is very controversial.” – The amount of antibiotics used – this raises far-reaching concerns, so in this situation the danger is huge. Ukrainian eggs are 30 groszy at markets. They are three times cheaper than Polish eggs, only of unknown production and unknown quality – he added.

Kosiniak-Kamysz said that the bail law of his formation has been “in the freezer” of the Sejm for nine months. “It lies all frosted and untouched for consideration,” he added.

He also assessed that in the matter of grain, the People’s Party are “probably the best experts”. – Our experts know each other because they are practitioners. They say from the very beginning: if there are no designated ports – not only in Poland, but throughout Europe – if there are no designated transit channels, then there is no chance of exporting this grain from Poland. It will stay in Poland – said the TVN24 guest.

He also drew attention to the problem with the import of other products, for example honey. – Beekeepers are alarming that honey received 2-3 times as much honey as is produced by Polish beekeepers during the season. This means that we have honey of unknown quality, unknown nutritional value, unknown origin and it is not known whether it is worth leaning over at all. This is a threat to consumers.

As he added, “we are not talking only about the issue of farmers.” – We are talking about entrepreneurs, consumers. Everyone has been deceived by the rulers – said Kosiniak-Kamysz.
