Do Polish immigrants support Polish products?

That is, if they have a choice to buy something (foods for example) would they buy it because it's a Polish product indirectly supporting Poland or they don't care?

Yesterday I bought a six-pack of imported Polish beer and thought I did the right thing ;). Too bad Poland doesn't manufacture and export more expensive products, like cars or electronics - with so many Polish immigrants Poland could become a powerful nation in no time :.

Buying things that have been transported a long way is an effective way to destroy this planet and environment even more.

It's better to buy locally produced things if it's possible.

Poland does manufacture Dell computers and Fiats.

But beyond that, yeah I think the Polish diaspora buys Polish products when they can (vodka and beer are tops, but if they can get their hands on pottery, cheeses, kielbasy, etc. they will.)

Yes,. very true, but doesn`t it apply to such madness as transporting strawberries from Australia to Europe? InterEuropean transport like Poland - UK is definitely less destructive in comparison.

Britain does not need to import strawberries, though we do, because British strawberries are the best.
Out of season in Britain?
Don't eat imported strawberries, they have no flavour.

I see. Does the British production suffice for your population`s needs? I know agriculture is well developed in the UK but there are 65 million people to feed.

In season, yes.
Just don't eat them out of season.
