Importaco Poland is now part of the prestigious Forbes Diamonds group, an annual ranking that assesses the growth of Polish companies over the past three years.
For the last fifteen years, the Polish edition of Forbes magazine has published a ranking which recognises the country’s fastest growing companies. In this case, Forbes rates Importaco Poland as “one of the leading food companies focusing on quality, product specialisation, innovation, food safety and sustainable development”.
As is the case at all our sites, at Importaco Poland we implement a sustainable and integrated supply chain, based on quality and food safety, to ensure maximum traceability of our products, from the field to the end consumer. “The right strategy, focused on close product specialisation, is what determines the success and long-term development of a company,” says Toño Pons, Managing Director of Importaco.
This system is supported by regular audits at our factory in Poland, but also by top-level qualifications such as BRC or IFS, and several products launched on the market with Kosher and Halal certification.
At Importaco, we understand quality from a cross-cutting perspective, which is why this factory is audited by SMETA 4P, which verifies issues such as health and safety at work, business ethics and the environmental impact of our actions.
The Importaco Development and Innovation Centre constantly studies and analyses consumer behaviour around the world and develops the latest solutions. This work focuses on configuring new product formats, without neglecting the quality and the impact on consumer health (clean label products), as well as taking environmental impact into account (zero waste).
Importaco Poland specialises in the processing and distribution of nuts, dried fruits, peanut paste and chocolates for the Polish and European markets. As part of our international expansion strategy, in 2003 we acquired the Polish company DOMAT, which had been operating since 1990 as an importer of nuts and dried fruits.
In 2015, a new Importaco Poland site opened in Białe Błota, near Bydgoszcz. This factory is equipped with the latest technology for processing peanuts, pistachios, cashew nuts and almonds.
We are currently focusing our activity in this country on two sales channels: the retail market and the food industry with the aim of increasing our share of the nut market in the entire Eastern European region.
This award is a huge boost for our organisation in Poland, where we will continue to reinforce our commitment to quality and excellence in order to consolidate this recognition.
