Our mission and values

Passion for culinary excellence

Perfecting the art of extracting flavors comes from traditional methods and an artisanal approach to producing cold cuts. We provide customers with products of the highest quality and exceptional taste, despite the fact that the company operates on a large scale and has more than 700 employees.

Respect for tradition

Although we operate as a modern company, family roots are key to us. We draw on regional recipes, and our meat products are still made according to proven traditional methods. In this way, we preserve the unique character of the products.

Innovation

The culinary world and consumer preferences are constantly changing, so remaining flexible and open to innovation is a priority. We are introducing new flavors, product lines and technologies to adapt to growing customer expectations.

Sustainability

We operate in harmony with nature, taking steps to minimize the negative impact of our activities on the environment. We use innovative technologies that reduce energy and water consumption, and reduce the amount of waste produced.

MARK’S Marszałkowscy mission

Our mission is to create exceptional culinary experiences underpinned by the highest quality, innovative production, sustainability, concern for animal welfare and, above all, respect for the tradition and history of our family business.

Although we operate as a modern and innovative company, our roots and traditions are central to us. We draw inspiration from regional recipes, nurturing them and passing them on to the next generation. We combine traditional production methods with modern selection and processing techniques.

This is how we preserve the authentic taste and unique character of our products. Therein lies the strength of MARK’S Marszałkowscy.

FOLLOWING TRADITION TO MODERNITY, TO CONNECT GENERATIONS WITH TASTE.
