about us

Our Company

Following the fall of communism in Poland, numerous Poles encountered the challenges of unemployment and poverty during the demanding 1990s. In our region, which lacked industrial development, we sought opportunities in agriculture. In 1995, armed with an old communist truck and $2,000, Lucjan Hojda embarked on his entrepreneurial journey, buying beans from local farmers and distributing them to other parts of the country.

Since then, many years have elapsed, but the enduring memory of hard work and the daily interactions with our suppliers and customers have become an integral part of our company's identity. We've maintained a family-oriented structure, treating all our employees like kin, and fostering a friendly connection with our suppliers and customers.

Our company's philosophy prioritizes values such as empathy, mutual support, and social responsibility over the single-minded pursuit of profit. While the bottom line remains important, we firmly believe in conducting business with a strong sense of humanity and community.
