B2RLaw has launched an Agriculture and Agrifood Practice, co-led by Partners Aleksandra Polak and Roman Iwanski.
According to B2RLaw, "Poland’s agriculture sector is vital to the European and global market because it produces a variety of agricultural, horticultural, and animal origin products and the industry will further grow due to policies encouraging a green and digital circular economy." In addition, according to the firm, “the surface area of agricultural land in Poland is 15.4 million hectares, which constitutes nearly 50% of the total area of the country.”
Furthermore, according to the firm, ”in 2019, Poland was the third largest producer of apples globally; the fourth largest producer of mushrooms after China, Japan and the US; the 2nd largest producer of rye after Germany; the 7th largest producer of sugar beets; and the 8th largest producer of potatoes.”
“Food and agribusiness form a USD 5 trillion global industry that is only getting bigger,” Iwanski commented. “If current trends continue, by 2050, the industry would grow by between 70-100%,” he said. “Our Agriculture and Agrifood Practice is able to cater [to] all the demands of the growing industry and we look forward to assisting Polish agribusinesses in their growth, as well as international investors, partners, and technology suppliers in their interaction with the Polish and CEE market.”
