Danish supermarket chain draws line on Polish products due to backlash
Danish supermarket chain Netto has dropped plans to bring in more Polish products amid a public backlash that was joined by Denmark's agriculture minister herself
Minister Mette Gjerskov wrote on her Twitter account that Polish products meant “more pesticides, bad animal husbandry and less pay.
“You choose!” she added.
The Netto chain had claimed that by upping its stock of Polish products, customers would have lower costs.
But the intense customer backlash has prompted a very different outcome, with certain Polish items, including all fresh meat products, being cut entirely from stock.
