New Zealand farmers support Polish farmers: don't legislate to kill your food industry.

New Zealand consumers like Polish produce in your excellent traditions

Do NOT legislate just to satisfy BigCorporate: that will drive away your customers, and throw your hard-working farmers out on the streets, all for NOTHING (we are compelled to kill the criminal company Monsanto in the USA)

Sincerely
Michael Rose

Problem in Poland

The problem in Poland is that: there are no different regulation for small farmers.... a that is the problem! The small farmers are treated the same as big companies and they have to fulffill these same regulations as big agro-bussiness. The Polish GOV never created other regulations for small scale production, as it is in other EU countries. Besides this processing food is qualified as outside farming activities so if farmer wants to produce ex. mogęnd sell legally - he will have to stop to be 'farmer' and register as 'producer'.

Dear Prime Minister,

Regulations that the Warsaw government has imposed over the years have made it virtually impossible to sell farm processed foods to local shops, schools or private individuals. The only way farmers can conform with the hygiene and sanitary regulations imposed from above, is by carrying out their simple processing tasks in specially designed and equipped buildings that none can afford to build or to adapt.. except the very large producers supplying the food industry and supermarkets. This is destroying the small and medium sized independent family farms that produce the best foods!

There are still one and a half million such farms in Poland! please save them from these inappropriate regulations.

As a visitor to Poland I have seen how your once beautiful countryside is gradually being destroyed by largescale industrial farming practices.

Yours Sincerely
Ursula Stubbings
