As Michał Owczarek reports, the move met with mixed reactions in Poland, where it has raised concerns over food safety standards, especially about GMO crops.

Meanwhile, Andrzej Gantner, the head of the Polish Food Industry Federation, points out that the implementation of the deal will not mean completely free trade. In some segments of agriculture, for instance, restrictions will apply for up to seven years.
