How to buy a beverages company in Poland

The beverage market in Poland

The beverage market is significantly growing across Poland. The Polish market is both dominated by the main brands and widespread in various small industries at the same time, which is a remainder of its past. The Polish beverages market can mainly be divided into two main and very different sectors, the alcoholic beverages and the not alcoholic beverages. In both sectors, the distribution of drinks, especially of alcoholic drinks has been always concentrated in independent small companies. However, with time, the market has changed and there has been more sophisticated consumer expectation. Hence, the companies have adapted to consumer demands and the type and variety of products has been increased in the recent years, where specialists gained share. With regard to the soft beverages, no alcoholic drinks, they increased their variety, sophistication and specially their healthiness, due to recent consumer demands. For these reasons, there is expected to be further growth both in volume and value terms for the beverage market, alcoholic drinks such as beer, wine and cider and soft drinks, especially in bottled water, energy drinks and some carbonates such as low calorie cola carbonates, lemonade/lime, nectars and juices. It also must be taken into account that the Polish no alcoholic beverage companies export very little compared to other countries, as in many companies more than half of their production is sold nationally. On the contrary the production of alcoholic beverages such as wine and cider has been increased and for many of the companies dedicated to this sector, more than 70% of their sales are exports (outside Poland).
