Made in Poland: Production in Gorzów Wielkopolski
Last month Sourcebook held the workshop Breaking Points in Communication and Tools in Gorzów Wielkopolski as part of the Berlin-Poland initiative to help strengthen cross-border collaboration between Berlin-based brands and Polish manufacturers. The workshop was followed by a networking dinner and speed dating, as well as a tour of select factories in and around the city – which can be reached in just two hours by train from Berlin-Lichtenberg.
