You will find our tomatoes all over Poland. Before they arrive on tables, they grow and mature in greenhouses in Siechnice, Bogatynia and Ryczywół. These are unique places where extraordinary things happen every day. Learn more about these places.
In 2012 we took over Przedsiębiorstwo Produkcji Ogrodniczej “Siechnice”, and since then we have been constantly modernising and expanding with new greenhouse areas. Today, our greenhouses in Siechnice occupy 45 hectares of the highest quality crops, of which 39 hectares contain production with artificial lighting. At PPO Siechnice we mainly grow raspberry tomatoes, but also plum tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and seasonal cucumbers.
Our greenhouses in Bogatynia were put into operation in 2014 and are among the most modern in Europe. The fully illuminated 10-hectare area allows for year-round cultivation of the highest quality, tasty and plump raspberry tomatoes.
In 2019 we acquired an inactive company in Ryczywół near Kozienice. Since then, we have begun a thorough restructuring and implementation of the plan to build a greenhouse with a 23-hectare lighting system. The plan is to commission the greenhouse in September 2021.
