Fertilizer producers from Poland and Europe They severely limit or even stop production due to high standard gas costs. They explain that in such a situation production is unprofitable.
It turns out that not only farmers may have trouble in the fall, but Food industry representatives are already sounding the alarm. – This is a huge problem that affects all beer producers, not just beer – says Business Insider Bartłomiej Morzycki, General Director of the Confederation of Employers of the Brewery Industry in Poland, Browary Polskie. He warns that carbon dioxide shortages are “a direct threat to the continuity of production.”
– Beer is the smallest problem. Meat plants have five or six days’ worth of carbon dioxide. Later, pigs and poultry will be slaughtered, because no one has carbon dioxide – this is confirmed by Witold Choiński, president of the Polskie Mięso Association, in an interview with Business Insider.
This gas is a by-product of fertilizer production. Why is the meat industry needed? The solidified carbon dioxide is like ice. It is called “dry ice”. It is used, among other things in transportation.
Moreover, to lower or maintain the required temperature in the curing process Dry ice granules can be added directly to the meat (During grinding, mixing, to reduce the initial temperature or to keep the temperature constant by compensating for the heat generated in these processes).

– There is no alternative. We are looking for CO2 abroad, but it is not available anywhere. If the government doesn’t do anything about it, 80-90 per cent. Pork and poultry can be slaughtered – Chowinsky admits.
Don’t hide it The entire industry expects government intervention And supplies of these quantities of raw materials that allow slaughter. He explains that the problem will be immediately faced by producers, because no one will collect pigs or poultry from breeders, because they have nothing to do with them.
– Losses can reach billions of zlotys President’s estimates. This problem cannot be underestimated.
