Poland goes easier on gelatin imports

POLAND has relaxed its ban on gelatin imports following allegations that the ban had been introduced by politicians to protect a local producer from foreign competitors.

It will now allow imports of non-beef gelatin, but it will continue a ban on the European Union beef variety because of BSE concerns. Tariffs on non-animal gelatins in Poland remain high.
