ABSTRACT
The electronic trading platform for agri-food products could improve the efficiency and effectiveness of food trade and strengthen Poland’s position on the global market. In Poland, there has been no such solution so far, hence the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has taken the initiative to create an electronic trading platform called “Food Platform”. Its essence will consist in matching secure buy and sell transactions. The purpose of the paper is to identify groups of products recommended for trade on the Food Platform in terms of domestic and foreign turnover. The study identifies sectors of the Polish food industry, with the most significant share, and identified agricultural products that are particularly important for Polish agriculture. In other words, the agri-food sectors that could potentially deliver products to the sales platform were selected. Next, this selection was verified in terms of the possibility of trade activities on the world market. The analysis shows that the product groups recommended for trade on the Food Platform are: cereals, rapeseed, sugar, fruit and vegetables, milk, red meat and poultry meat, together with their preserves. The selection of specific products which may be the subject of commercial transactions on the sales platform will result from further detailed analyzes of individual agri-food markets.
