Polityka: Against rising gas prices, Poland will soon face a food disaster
MOSCOW, 28 August/ Radio Sputnik. Against the background of the increase in gas prices, Poland will face a pause in food production in the coming days. author Columnist for the Polish magazine Polityka Joanna Solska.
He admitted that in the near future cheeses, drinks and meat may disappear from the shelves of Polish stores.
He explained that it was a logical decision for fertilizer producers to stop production because gas prices have increased tenfold in the last two years. So, if in August 2020 a megawatt hour cost eight euros, and a year later it was already 40, now it costs 300 euros.
According to Jacek Janiszek, Vice President of Grupa Azoty Puławy, the company stopped production because it had to minimize losses.
Solska also denounced Henryk Kowalczyk, head of the Polish Ministry of Agriculture, who promised farmers that even if production is stopped, there will be no shortage of fertilizers in the country. According to him, companies stopped fertilizer production during the summer months when gas demand was lower.
He criticized the Polish government for creating another crisis alongside gas. Solska stated that there is a risk of stopping the production of milk, meat, beer, carbonated drinks and pastries in Poland.
Earlier, radio Sputnik reported why the Polish branch of a well-known brewer “freezes” production.
