The Polish spirits industry is calling on further excise tax cuts to boost the domestic industry and protect it from foreign competition, despite the 30% cut the industry received this year.

The National Chamber of Spirits Processing (KRPS) says the current cuts are not enough and is hoping for furhte rcuts next year.

From 1 October the tariffs of excise tax on alcohol will go down by 30%, amounting to around ZL4,400 per hectolitre of alcohol.
