Farming methods in Poland have improved considerably over the last ten years, helped by the country's membership of the EU. Now, what the farmers want most are long term contracts that allow them to invest for the future.

Poland joined the EU in 2004. This has opened up the market, and farmers have been able to access start-up funding and investment, access knowledge and improve cultivation.

Today, juggling supply and demand, and balancing farming contracts and customer orders, is an important job in the business, says SVZ International, a supplier of fruit and vegetable ingredients.

SVZ invited this publication to Poland to see raspberries and carrots being harvested. In this video, it explains how it believes a contract of 3 to 5 years gives the farmer the stability it needs to invest for the future.  

SVZ makes ingredients for sectors including beverage, dairy, ice cream, bakery and confectionery.
