It all started in…
…1952, when the “Veritas” State Candy and Chocolate Factory was relocated from the city centre to the Lublin Sugar Factory. This date is accepted as the commencement of “Pszczółka” Candy Factory operations.
Our production facility was established in a former sugar refinery. This location provided easy access to some fundamental raw materials required for the production of sweets, namely sugar (from the Lublin Sugar Factory) and starch syrup (from the nearby Potato Industry Works).
From 1961, the Candy Factory started to
operate as a branch of the Lublin Sugar Factory.
In 2009, the Company achieved the status of an independent branch of Krajowa Spółka Cukrowa S.A.
In November 2010, “Pszczółka” span out of Krajowa Spółka Cukrowa S.A. and has since operated as an independent commercial law entity. This allowed the Company to improve its recognition and manage its branding as a candy producer. Krajowa Spółka Cukrowa S.A. is the sole shareholder in the Company.
In 2014, “Pszczółka” obtained a permit for business operations within the Special Economic Zone in the EURO-PARK Mielec, Lublin Subzone, and became the owner of a plot of land with an area of 3.1 ha, located at 7 Spiessa St. This kicked off a new investment – the construction of an advanced candy factory to produce a wide range of chocolate and jelly products. The construction of the factory and its storage and office facilities commenced in November 2015.
The new candy factory was launched in April 2017. Its total area is 20,511 square metres. As one of the most highly state-of-the-art facilities in Europe, it deploys highly automated production lines and advanced technology to guarantee superior quality.
The President of “Pszczółka” is Leszek Wertejuk.
