Polish goose is also appreciated abroad
Goose meat has long been recognized around the world, and Poland is one of the largest producers of goose meat in Europe. For years, the largest recipients of domestic goose meat were the Germans and the French. However, in 2018, there was a change and Hong Kong was at the top of the list of the largest importers. This shows the growing interest in this exceptionally healthy meat in Asia.
In Poland, there is a visible increase in the domestic consumption of goose meat. Just a few years ago, an average Pole was eating only 17 grams of goose meat a year. Currently, this indicator has increased significantly and is already more than 300 grams per year. This is as much as 20 times more consumption of this meat compared to the past!
