Dear Prime Minister

I was astonished to hear that small Polish farmers are not allowed to process their own foods without investing in equipment that is too expensive for a small farmer. Here in the UK small scale food processing is encouraged on the farm, and sanitary requirements are more relaxed for farm foods sold locally, because such produce is more easily traced than industrially marketed produce. In the UK, raw milk can only be bottled and sold from the farm because that is deemed to be safer.
Poland is famous in the UK for its sausages, pickles and other farm produce. I urge you to change the laws to encourage and assist small scale
farm processing.,

Your Sincerely
