Warsaw-based Ewa-Bis exports fruit and vegetables from all over Poland. Its products are sold in 25 countries around the world. Ewa-Bis was founded by Marek Marzec, who grew up in his family orchard in Sandomierz, Poland. It was there he learned the basics of growing fruit trees and planted the seeds to his future career.

The company supplies both conventionally-grown and organic produce. Thanks to EU funding it got in 2014, Ewa-Bis now has a business-to-business IT system. This has helped it increase turnover and develop a database of suppliers and customers worldwide.

The company has already taken advantage of the EU’s trade agreements. CETA brings new export opportunities to Ewa-Bis and helps it to establish a foothold in Toronto in expectation of expanding its business. In fact, CETA not only has removed customs duties on Europe's fruit and vegetable exports, but has also issued new procedures that simplify and accelerate the approval process for exporting plants, fruit and vegetables from the EU to Canada.
