History of the Company
History of our enterprise dates back to 1928 when in the 1930s a Rice Mill was opened on the premises of the port in Gdynia. At that time, it was the largest plant of this type in Europe.
After the World War II, the factory was incorporated into the Polish Cereal Plants (Polskie Zakłady Zbożowe). Social and economic transformations, commenced in August 1980, made it possible to set up an independent firm again, dealing with rice processing.
On 1 May 1992, Przedsiębiorstwo “Rol-Ryż” Spółka z o.o. (Limited Liability Company) started to operate. Further modernisation and expansion stages of the plant were carried out. Rol-Ryż has gained its experience and built the market of rice in Poland.
In that period, the company was centred around mainly on the domestic market and on cooperation with Kaliningrad Oblast (Russia).
After Polish accession to the EU in 2004, shares in Rol-Ryż were acquired by Marbour Group with its production plants in the Netherlands, France, Great Britain, Italy, Canada and on Réunion, Guadeloupe and Mauritius islands.
Marbour belongs to the Federation of European Rice Manufacturers (FERM) representing the sector on the European forum.
Intensive development of the company took place in the following years. Modern lines for rice processing, for control of quality and for automation of the packaging and storing process were installed.
Currently, Rol-Ryż is the sole professional rice processing and manufacturing plant and the biggest importer of rice in Central and Eastern Europe.
