The food market in wholesale trade, in Europe and worldwide, is among the most dynamically developing and changing sectors of the industry. To remain in the lead, it is necessary to update the product offer, to monitor the trends in the industry, and to make use of innovative technological processes. The development policy implemented by ROS-SWEET Sp. z o.o. has resulted in many awards and certificates. Among others, we have received “Forbes Diamonds” in the category of small and medium enterprises. The company ranked first in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship ranking .

In 2014, we received the “Quality of the Year 2014” emblem for the brands Melbake’s Good Seeds and Walnut Kernel with care, optically sorted.
The company constantly invests in its development – expansion of storage areas, state-of-the-art machinery, advanced processes of cleaning, drying or sorting of products…
We invest systematically in new technologies and use innovative solutions – beginning from the optical and laser sorting line for dried fruit and seeds, through a fluid bed dryer, to metal detectors used at every stage of production. The technical infrastructure also enables thermal stabilization of raw materials, while advanced processes of drying and gravity cleaning enable our products to meet the expectations of even the most demanding customers in Europe.
Additionally, to ensure satisfaction of our customers, all raw materials used in production are thoroughly tested by the Department of Quality Control – Laboratory, which guarantees batch-to-batch repeatability.
The brand has been associated with top-quality standards for years…
The quality policy in place at the company is a result of investing in state-of-the-art machinery and the implementation of quality control procedures certified with the ISO 22000 system.
The scope of certification for ROS-SWEET Sp. z o.o. includes the process of production, distribution and sale of walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, almonds, as well as poppy seeds, caraway seeds and linseeds, as well as the distribution and sale of dried fruit and seeds: sesame, pumpkin seeds and sunflower kernel.
The ISO 22000 certificate for ROS-SWEET Sp. z o.o. was authorized by the company SGS Polska Sp. z o.o. – System & Services Certification.
Thanks to the continuous development and expansion of the assortment offer, ROS-SWEET has a stable position in the market of nuts, seeds and dry fruit, herbs, legumes, as well as fresh and frozen vegetables and fruit. Has anything new appeared this year?
It is only the top-quality of products offered, professional service, as well as transparent conditions of cooperation, intended to establish durable business relationhips, which distinguishes us among other companies.
We are aware that systematic updates of the product offer are necessary to maintain the established market position. Therefore, we systematically supplement our product range with new assortment items. One of them is the production of sesame pulp, which, due to the technology of constant smooth roasting of sesame, maintains the batch uniformity with regard to the roasting grade, colour and taste. Recently, the offer of ROS-SWEET has also been expanded by ground poppy seed and grated walnut.
Our flagship brands have also undergone a facelift: Melbake’s Good Seeds, Lulido, Almond Sliced, Almond Slivered, Groundnut, and Walnut Kernel.
The offer of ROS-SWEET is directed to bakeries, confectionaries or dried fruit packaging companies, processing and trading companies. Your customers also include recipients from Western, Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic states, Russia. Do you plan an expansion of the geographic range?
ROS-SWEET Sp. z o.o. has been active in the wholesale market of dried fruit and seeds since 2006, systematically expanding the product offer and territorial range of its business.
Many years of experience have brought the company a stable position in the domestic and foreign market. The main export directions are: Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, the United Kingdom, Russia, Ukraine and the Balkan states.
We hope that this year's participation in the IBA and Anuga trade fairs will allow us to reach a wider group of end recipients from the bakery and confectionary sector and to broaden the group of regular customers.
Thank you. (KP)
