HoReCa is back in operation
According to PMR data, the value of the HoReCa market in Poland has been growing in recent years, by 6% year on year in 2019 to nearly PLN 33bn. In 2020, this situation was changed by the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic in Poland and the resulting restrictions on the operation of gastronomic premises (ban on serving guests in the premises and the possibility to provide services only for take-away or delivery).Currently, the restrictions on the operation of restaurants have been loosened (restaurants may welcome guests under an appropriate sanitary regime).
