Poldanor is an agricultural company known throughout Europe. It acquired its first farm in 1994. In 2011, Poldanor manages crop production on a total area of 15,000 hectares, and pig production based on a foundation herd of over 18,100 sows. Pig production takes place at more than 30 farms. Poldanor is part of the AXZON Group, a global concern focused on sustainable development of agricultural business and providing consumers with high-quality food products.
Poldanor has its roots in modern Danish agriculture, and it carries on complementary agricultural activities by satisfying some of its demand for feed with its own grain production, and by utilising animal dung to produce biogas and renewable energy. Its production employs modern and balanced technologies, bringing the company near to “precision farming”. These methods are sustainable, emphasising stability and respect for the geographical and social environment.
The company implements with great satisfaction the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Poldanor has repeatedly received the “Business Fair Play” award. This award programme promotes ethics and business culture among entrepreneurs. In order to qualify for the award, a company must contribute significantly to establishing positive relations with local communities and caring for the environment.
Poldanor provides its employees with attractive terms of employment and the opportunity to improve their qualifications through training. In order to ensure this, the Poldanor Agriculture & Management Academy (PAMA) was established in 2006.
The company employs more than 520 people.
It is constantly investing in new technologies. In 2005–2011, in the only investment of its type in Poland, Poldanor built eight modern agricultural biogas plants utilising animal dung and other types of biomass. When all of the planned biogas plants are put into operation, carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by about 500,000 tonnes per year.
