Polish inspectors have banned the sale of a batch of more than 7 tons of ice cream that was previously imported from Ukraine. The Poles did not have any questions about the quality of the product – they were not satisfied with the labeling.

The decision was announced on the microblog of the Polish Agricultural and Food Quality Inspectorate (IJHARS) in Poznan. 7127.7 kg of ice cream in a cone was withdrawn from sale due to incorrect labeling – some of the information was obscured, the inspectors explained. The decision was immediately enforced.

This is not the first time this month that Ukrainian products have been banned from the Polish market. On April 11, IJHARS seized two batches of cookies weighing 10.55 tons in Rzeszow, and three days earlier, three batches of Ukrainian bagels weighing 5.34 tons. And in Lublin, three batches of Ukrainian ice cream weighing 8.48 tons were seized due to defrosting.

In addition, in early April, a Ukrainian company was fined a record-breaking PLN 1.5 million (about $380 thousand) for importing 11.5 thousand tons of technical rapeseed and feed wheat as counterfeit products for further use. It was also decided to ban the import of 57.66 tons of tomato paste from Ukraine due to the presence of mold.

In general, according to the chief inspector of IJHARS Przemyslaw Żodkiewicz, 1.4% of batches of products from Ukraine were rejected at the border over the past year.

OBOZ.UA also reported that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Poland removed the list of Ukrainian grain importers from its website. The head of the ministry apologized to Ukrainian companies that suffered losses because of this.
