Modern warehouse and production facilities
The Green Factory initially engaged in the production and sale of fresh vegetables. Since 2006, following the dynamically developing convenience products market, it has expanded its product range with fresh, washed and cut vegetables under the Fit & Easy brand, and since 2015, the company has focused exclusively on Ready to Eat products, gradually expanding its assortment with new product ranges, including private label products.
The entire production takes a total surface of 14 600 m2.
Our clients are the largest retail chains in Poland, as well as the traditional market and HoReCa industry (e.g. McDonald’s). Our highest quality products have been recognised by recipients from demanding markets like Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Scandinavia and Ukraine, where export is directed.
Currently, the Green Factory Group includes specialised subsidiaries in individual regions: Green Factory Wielkopolska (production and sales in Western Poland and to the west), Green Factory Bronisze (operating on the traditional market), Green Factory (serving central and eastern Poland, and exporting to the east) and Green Factory Logistics (transport and logistics).
Our mission is to develop in the field of production, co-packing and distribution of the highest quality standard products.
We do it in an eco-friendly way, in line with the quality policy and HACCP system which meets the Clients’ needs and ensures constant utilization and maximization of employee’s potential.
Quality & Certificates
Our company’s objective is to increase customer satisfaction, and it is achieved through work in accordance with the HACCP food safety standard and an integrated quality management system. We meet high quality requirements in terms of production, sales, distribution and customer service.
It is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner, in line with the HACCP quality standard, to meet the needs of our customers and to ensure the continuous use and improvement of our employees’ potential.
Taking care of the Environment
All the activities of our company are carried out while taking care of the environment. We take steps contributing to its improvement and rational use of natural resources. In the production process, we use environmentally friendly technologies, which helps to reduce factors poisonous for water, air and soil.
- our plants have been equipped with vacuum solar collectors, thanks to which we get warm water, necessary in the process of vegetable processing,
- for washing machines with warm water we use heat from the recovery systems installed in the engine room of the refrigerant,
- thanks to heat recovery, we have managed to reduce gas consumption by about 80% in boiler rooms and thereby reduced emissions of exhaust fumes and greenhouse gases,
- we have our own sewage treatment plant and we work with recyclers, so our packages are segregated and processed for re-use. The effect of this type of action is to reduce waste to a minimum.
To ensure food safety:
- we use raw materials derived exclusively from certified domestic and foreign suppliers,
- we carry out audits of raw materials suppliers. The purpose of these inspections is to confirm the compliance of the crops with the requirements set out in the systems to guarantee the safety of the crop (fertilizing, plant protection and irrigation systems),
- we carry out laboratory analysis, both locally and using the services of accredited laboratories, covering a broad spectrum of microbiological and physic-chemical parameters, which determine food safety, as well as the safety of water used for irrigation and processing,
- we have implemented and certified systems in processing plants – FSSC 22000, IFS, SQMS, ISO 14001.
The Fit & Easy culinary studio, which opened in the spring of 2017, is located in the headquarters of the company in Zdunowo.
It is a place for meetings, conversations, inspirations, the search for new flavours and ideas for innovative products.
The studio is full of life, hosting culinary workshops with employees, bloggers and journalists, under the watchful eye of chefs.
For the R&D Department, it is an inspirational place where new products are prepared and tested.
The Green Land – culinary and educational workshops for students and teachers
“The Green Land” is our own unique nationwide project, designed to educate the young generations about a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition in line with the guidelines of the Food and Nutrition Institute. The project was initiated by Green Factory and Jeronimo Martins Polska.
