Olam Poland was founded in 2000 as a marketing office for green coffee. Gradually, we established ourselves as a leading Robusta coffee supplier to Eastern Europe, and subsequently, further expanded our operations into sugar exports, and the distribution of cocoa products, spices and edible nuts.
2004 was a crucial year for our Polish operations. We carried out significant business restructuring as Poland joined the European Union, expanding our operations into dairy origination. Within three years, we established ourselves among the country’s top three dairy exporters, specialising in whey powders and milk powders.
Since then, our Dairy business has grown significantly, most notably with our operation of a casein mill in Lodz and the acquisition of a technical casein business from Naarden Agro Products and Fleur Sp. z o.o. in 2007. Employing 30 people (seven in Warsaw, with the balance in our factory in Lodz). We are a true supply chain manager in Poland’s dairy sector, managing origination, processing, logistics and distribution. Today, our products are marketed worldwide to a wide range of customers.
