Farm nameAgro-Belpol Sp. z o.o.
Farm size: 500 ha
Main crops: potatos
Agro-Belpol Sp. z o.o. was created in 1999 as a Polish and Belgian company, and in 2010 it turned into a Polish family business. It established business relations with Farm Frites Poland S.A. at the very beginning of its operations. Today, it is one of the major suppliers of raw material to the Lębork factory. The company specialises in the production of raw material for FFP and it grows only potatoes. It does not have its own land, leasing 100% of its fields instead. In the first year of its activity, it had 160 ha and continued increasing the area up to about 500 ha. The raw material harvested from the field is supplied to the FFP storehouse in Nowa Wieś Lęborska to be kept there for a few months.
Since its beginning, with a goal to achieve a large crop of top quality for processing, the company has been investing in cutting-edge technologies such as GPS-based parallel tracking and self-propelled harvesters and spraying machines. To ensure the safety of their products, they undergo Global GAP certification on an annual basis.
Continuous development of the company is facilitated through close cooperation with FPP, primarily due to regular contacts with specialists from the Raw Material Supply Department and numerous training events to develop efficient business management skills.
Agro-Belpol was one of the first farms to join the Sustainable Farming pilot group managed by the Polish Sustainable Farming Association “ASAP.” This way, as a conscious entrepreneur, it may combine efficient growth with consideration for the welfare of future generations.
