Organic Processing and Trade Association

OPTA EUROPE welcomes the Polish Chamber of Organic Food (PIZE) as new associated member

Brussels, 26 April 2023


OPTA Europe is glad to announce that Polish Chamber of Organic Food (PIZE) has joined the association as associated member.

PIZE is the organisation recognised by the Polish government for the promotion of organic food in both the internal and external markets. PIZE supports its members through, amongst others, the promotion of exports of Polish organic food and the cooperation and exchange of experience with national and foreign organizations.

OPTA Europe and PIZE have a strong trade orientation; their cooperation is intended to gather organic companies to help them seize global trade opportunities by sharing market knowledge and expertise. At the time when the EU internal market is slowing down, expanding into new markets and reaching new consumers is our shared approach to keep organic strong.
