Przedsiębiorstwo Przetwórstwa Zbożowego KAPKA Sp. j. is a family business with a milling tradition going back 50 years. It is also one of the biggest producers of flour in Poland. The main business activity of PPZ KAPKA is the purchasing and processing of grains. We produce wheat flours, speciality flours and domestic use flours of the highest quality. One of our most successful products is the excellent Jarosławska Flour, manufactured in accordance with a long tradition.
We own three production facilities located in south-eastern Poland: a wheat mill in Tarnogród (Lubelskie Voivodeship), as well as a wheat mill and a rye mill in Jarosław (Podkarpackie Voivodeship). We have an extensive logistics network and our own transport fleet. We have a flexible approach to the requirements and expectations of our customers and we provide reliable advice and competitive prices.
Our extensive experience, high quality of products, professional service and the fact that we always ensure customer satisfaction have made our company a major player among the grain processing firms in Poland. We cooperate with hundreds of business partners, both domestic and international. We kindly invite wholesalers, supermarkets, food processing plants, bakeries, pastry shops and confectionery shops to start cooperation with us.
Our laboratory facilities are equipped to evaluate the basic characteristics of the grain and for determining the baking quality of the flours. The following tests are carried out:
- gluten content
- protein content
- Zeleny index
- moisture content

- ash content
- sieve test

We also determine the following characteristics:

The flours are also tested by experimental baking tests in production facilities at KAPKA Bakery in Tarnogród, located near the flour mill.
