He added that Poles did not have to worry about the country's as was a huge food producer and exporter.

"Last year's food exports totaled nearly 40 billion euros ($42 billion), this year's were even larger, which means we have reserves," the Minister said.

Referring to doubts voiced by Polish farmers about Ukrainian grain arriving in and its possible impact on grain prices in the country, Kowalczyk said that such a problem did not exist.

"Over two million tonnes of Ukrainian grain had entered Poland by the end of September, while Poland's grain exports exceeded six million tonnes in the same period," Kowalczyk said.

Poland's inflation rate is among the highest in the European Union.

According to Statistics Poland, the prices of consumer goods and services increased by 17.5 per cent year-on-year in November.
