Thanks to my professional experience, I will be able to ensure that Nestmedic’s expansion to foreign markets is successful and carried out in line with the general strategy of the Company development. I will also be able to implement it successfully, says Barbara. We have already started first activities in this respect, among other things, co-operating with the Fraunhofer Institute, we have carried out an analysis of the German market. Following our strategy, we are also focusing, among others, on Spain, Italy and France. – Since the very beginning, we have always planned to expand our distribution network beyond Poland. Now that we are in possession of resources, time and determination, it is time to start the expansion.
