Control of food safety in Poland

lód spożywczy kostki lodu
It is well known, especially from reports of the Supreme Audit Office (NIK), which regularly examines various elements of the system, that the control of food safety in Poland leaves a lot to be desired.
According to NIK, the main threats in the food chain are as follows:
– food contamination (poor food quality),
– food adulteration,
– inadequate conditions for storing and selling food,
– inadequate animal welfare conditions (inappropriate animal nutrition – bone meal, transmission of zoonotic diseases to humans),
– illegal food production.
Ice seems easy to produce as it is just frozen water. The seemingly simple production creates the potential for abuses and negligence.
