Tridge summary

A debate at the European Congress of Agribusiness Managers in Żnin, Poland, discussed the impact of the Ukraine war on the production and export of agri-food products. Poland, which has a positive trade balance with Ukraine, exports ready-to-eat products while importing raw materials. However, the trade balance for food products and agricultural produce is negative. Meanwhile, Russia's record harvests have resulted in an export surplus, influencing global grain prices.
