Now Available: Homewares in Poland

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Oct 21 2014

The trend towards healthy lifestyles is becoming increasingly popular in Poland. Numerous TV programmes, magazines and books are created in order to promote healthy living. A significant part of that trend is a healthy, low-fat diet and demand for cooking at home. Good chefs are becoming famous celebrities. For example, Lidl, one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods chains in Poland, has used two of them - Karol Okrasa and Pascal Brodnicki – two famous chefs that used to have their own culinary programmes on TV - in a long-running campaign promoting Lidl stores by encouraging people to cook at home instead of eating out. Such a trend has a strong, positive impact on the performance of homewares categories, especially fuelling growth in cookware and kitchenware. With growing interest in home cooking there has been a simultaneous surge in the number of cooking blogs and small, trendy homewares e-shops where consumers can buy more sophisticated and individual products. In larger cities, such as Warsaw and Cracow, so-called "food markets", where small, local manufacturers sell food products as well as stylish kitchen and dinnerware, are very trendy places and are sometimes organised even several times in a month. A strong manifestation of this trend is the number of new micro manufacturers of kitchen utensils, food storage, and ovenware. Their products are often manufactured from glass or silicon rather than less eco-friendly plastic.
