Re: How good "Made in Poland" really is?

Thank you Slaphead,

I did a survey in surveymonkey.com regarding one polish product (vodka called Zybruwka).

However I wanted to find out what the people associate Poland with, and more over the label - "Made in Poland" therefore I asked the question in such a way, and leaving the people to answer the way the want to. This will be added to the data from the other surveys made of closed questions.

I also believe that the other surveys limit the way people show their perceptions.

But anyway, thank you all for the involvement. I really appreciate it.

Cheers,
Vladi

Polish machine tools are viewed very favorably among machinists; especially popular worldwide are toolholding and workholding specialists (and adorably named) Bison, out of Bialystok.

Re: How good "Made in Poland" really is?

Wow,

interesting to see the feedback.
I am wondering why would one be interested in conducting a survey about 'made in PL'.

As a polish citizen, I would say:

10/10 for the food and drink
10/10 for people's social features (very friendly, open minded)
miss that actually...

Gotta concur about the lovely Polish women I have met.

With these kind of scores for the women, booze, humor, and sausages, looks like Poland is the place to be!

Re: How good "Made in Poland" really is?

I've been there a couple of times, always very nice, relaxed and fun times. Even the odd business meetings I had to interpret at, very....non pc and bizarre. I would trust a Polish product in terms of health hasard a lot more than say Chinese (baby carriages, toys, etc.). The only -10 I would give were the roads and drivers, even worse than Czechs.

I'm not sure I ever bought a "made in poland" product in switzerland. Can you give examples?

But i can say: pilots 0/10

That is not true at all. We have fantastic pilots.
Where did you take it from???

My mum used to drink Polish beer.

At least I think it was beer. The brand was Brasso - I guess this is a town in Poland.
No, it wasn't

Re: How good "Made in Poland" really is?

Iza, you really should check out the Polish forum for this kind of things. I am not a member, but I know a few women who meet regularly and they seem to be a fairly close-knit community. I happened to meet one of them through the EF in the most bizarre way: we were PM-ing each other in English without realizing that we were both Polish until my email address with my surname was revealed.

About the “made in Poland” label, generally I would say that a developing nation would always want to prove itself so we have to work hard to shake off the grey commie image. What’s more, Poland has always been caught between the East and the West and we have always been unsure where we actually want to belong. I think it was Norman Davies who said that the Poles are just desperate to succeed now and I would say it is fairly accurate.

I would confidently give literature and journalism 10/10, though.

Sure, sure. and she weaned you onto it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brasso

I give Poland cafes 10/10 for having the best apple charlotte I have even tasted - the best afternoon snack on far too many occassions.

Listening to LOndon cabbies who seem to use their services a lot, the POlish trades people seem to have a very good reputation for the quality of their work as plumbers, builders etc, so on a hearsay basis I give that a 10 as well and would certainly use them if I needed work to be done.

Another 10 for the Polish Man With a Van, who moved all my stuff from the UK to Slovakia for me - friendly, fast and efficeint. NO breakages.

Then there were the two unknown Polish couchsurfers who arrived on my doorstep one freezing cold, pelting with rain night. Having cycled in from the airport, they arrived with the biggest, brightest, wettest smiles I have ever seen. So, a 10 for the people.

I agree with Musicchick about the roads though :-)
