A journey into the unknown

As a young researcher, Piotr Eggert, starts to study a new berry - the aronia. The work is carried out at the Warsaw Forestry Research Institute to increase biodiversity. In 1978 Piotr Eggert and Maria Cichowicz publish the first article on Polish aronia berries. Thus officially begins the history of the black
aronia in Poland.

The first nursery

The best plants are currently being tested to establish a nursery. Nero, a low-bushy, high-yielding variety that is difficult to propagate, is being selected. Despite the historical turmoil, Piotr and Krystyna Eggert establish the first private nursery in the Łowicz region. Paweł Eggert is also born.

The aronia boom!

The nursery changes location. The heart of the nursery starts beating in the Goszczyn commune of Mazovia. The first nursery rootstock is born, from which further selections are still made today. The process of selecting the best specimens is repeated for up to 10 years. In the late 1990s, production and sales of cuttings increase rapidly, and Poland becomes the world leader in aronia acreage.

B2B processing plant

In response to many requests for aronia products, Pawel Eggert is taking up the challenge by starting the wholesale production of preserves in a B2B processing plant.

The premium preparations are distributed to foreign customers as private labels.
