which has been present on the Polish market since 1990. Three generations of the Safader family work here. Jerzy – the Chairman – is the founder of the company. His daughter Marzena has been gaining experience for 21 years, starting as a trading specialist and now holding the position of the deputy chairperson. Jerzy’s granddaughter, Karolina, has also been working for the company for a few years now as the manager of the company’s trading department. Stanpol is a company built on strong principles and with a long-term vision. It has always been Jerzy’s dream to build a company with an organisational culture unique for family-owned companies, which in STANPOL was based on values such as honesty, cooperation, respect and creativity. We simply know that honest and open relations are the solid base that makes it easier for the company to operate as it unifies all the staff making us exceptional. People are important to us because it is only thanks to them that the company can develop.
STANPOL Sp. z o.o. is a 100% family-owned Polish company dealing with processing and exporting fish. The values we stand by are honesty, cooperation, respect and creativity.
Stanpol is a family-owned company
The main aim of STANPOL is to produce healthy food and to provide services that meet the clients’ expectations. 30-years’ experience in this field, extensive knowledge of the market, high quality standards and continuous technological improvements ensure the perfect quality of our products and services. We owe our success to the professional approach and expert knowledge of our team supported by their continuous training and extensive professional experience.
One of the key assets of our company is flexibility and individual approach to each client and then adjusting the chain of supplies to the client’s needs. We have implemented the HACCP system for quality and food safety management. Production is carried out in compliance with the technological and quality standards of the European Union. Production is carried out in compliance with the following implemented certificates: IFS, BRC, FDA, Organic, ASC, MSC, Global Gap, Koszer.
Our goods are sold mainly to the European Union markets. We use meticulously selected raw materials originating from certified suppliers and they are subject to strict inspections at every stage of production. One of the many important events in the history of Stanpol is definitely the modernisation of the technological equipment co-financed by the European Union, which has made it possible for us to use modern production technology and enjoy the status of a modern, environmentally friendly company. We own our own refrigerated transport and therefore we can be sure that our products are transported in ideal cooling conditions. Our vehicles comply with the Euro 6 European standard of exhaust emissions.
30 years of experience makes us proud that the choice of the aim and direction of the company’s development turned out to be right and the vision and mission have become values that are the central point of our staff’s activities.
Stanpol originates from the Voivodeship Association of Agricultural Production Cooperative operating in the 1980s, where Jerzy Safader was the chairman. In response to the market changes, Jerzy bought 100% of the shares in the cooperative and set up the Kontakt company.
In 1994 Jerzy Safader changed the profile of the company as well as its name – to the well known Stanpol sp. z o.o. of today. In the beginning the company mainly dealt with trading in the raw material. The first location of the company was the plant in Staniewice, however this location made it impossible for the company to grow.
Having acquired a plant in Białogard, Stanpol sp. z o.o. joined the group of fish processing companies. In 1999 a real estate was bought in Białogard, ul. Rogowskiego 2 from AJC Amur company. The newly acquired space seemed huge at that time...
As the company develops, the Board decides to purchase yet another plant in Białogard in ul. Kołobrzeska 46 from the Animex company. Today every corner of both plants is used effectively to make work comfortable and efficient.
As the company developed, more and more people were employed. Those times are very well remembered by Małgosia, Aneta, Dorota and Krystyna who are still working with us today. We do everything we can for all our present employees to stay with us for many years.
The company obtains its first EU funding for developing the manufacturing line. Thanks to this we can fillet and treat fish perfectly as well as pack it in ecological packaging.
The company develops and gains speed. The first trade fair in which Stanpol participated took place in Brussels. We went, not without some shyness, but we managed to win the French over. Since that time we have taken part in numerous other trade fairs, winning the trust of more and more clients.
The next stage in our development was opening a company shop in December 2011 in the head office of our company in Kołobrzeska 46 in Białogard. This makes it possible to buy tasty fresh fish right here, in our company.
Polish entrepreneurs were distinguished for their results and dynamic sales in France and received awards from the Polish Ambassador in Paris. Jerzy Safader was proud to receive a statue and a diploma signed by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and the Economy.
It was already the third time that we met at the Family Picnic in Białogard. The picnic has become a regular event in the calendar of Stanpol integration parties and is a holiday for our employees and their families. In this way we like to thank our employees for yet another work of hard work.
We care about team development in Stanpol. In December we finished a cycle of trainings for production leaders within the scope of work standardisation, visual management and visual control. Foremen and team leaders are the level of management which is the closest to the process and the people on a daily basis, which makes it the basis for improvement and development of the employees and the company.
2020 +The future
We pride ourselves in having 30 years of experience, fantastic staff, developed relations with suppliers and clients, modern machines and a well-deserved reputation of the supplier of fish of the highest quality. It is not our intention to rest on our laurels. We follow the changes on the market as well as consumers’ needs, we plan new healthy products, innovative investments and further integration of our staff.
