Mission

Fresh, local and healthy produce; these values are at the heart of our philosophy. Family-favourite Univer has been making delicious dressings and sumptuous sauces since 1948 and is the established leader of delicious foods in Hungary. The company employs approximately 600 people directly - nearly half of them for more than 10 years - and provides work and living to hundreds of Hungarian farmers. Furthermore, environmental consciousness is an important aspect of Univer’s life. It permeates every aspects of the operation - with particular regard to energy efficiency and reduced waste emission.

Partners in the world

Germany, Poland, Romania and Hungary is our main market, but we plan to expand in Europe with new developements and further investments.

Production capacity

Our facility is Hungary's largest factory in its category. Univer Product Plc. has got up-to-date producing technology. It is a new cutting-edge tomato processing system which is able to process 2,000 tons of raw tomatoes per day. And we are planning to further increase our capacities.

Raw material

The raw material supply system of Univer was established in 1975. This system is based exclusively on hundreds of Hungarian farmers, working in the area of Kecskemét within 80 km-s. It’s quite common that these days the second and third generation of the primary producers – the sons and grandsons of the farmers of the founding age – are supplying the fine quality raw materials of the products. This is how we secure a living for hundreds of local families...

Univer tomato concentrate contains 100% fresh tomatoes from Hungarian growers.

Reference farm

The region has decades of tradition in open field tomato cultivation. The Univer reference farm revives this tradition by fulfilling the most recent requirements, helping the local agricultural communities permanently. Univer introduces modern methods, varieties and technologies, handing them over to local farmers, who can constantly supply high-quality raw materials to the new Univer tomato processing plant. The role of the reference farm is far beyond tomato cultivation and propagation. The reference farm provides services for the farmers and acts as a base of technical equipments as well.

Production

We continuously track and help our producers from as early the selection and planting of seedlings. Whenever necessary, we provide them with technological assistance and professional advice.

Before harvesting begins, samples are taken from produce grown both by Univer and our producers. The samples are used during tests for measuring heavy metals content, the presence of pesticides and any spraying agent residue. Only feedstock that complies with test parameters and has an accurately kept spraying log may enter tomato processing plant premises. The combine used for harvesting the crop is equipped with a state-of-the-art automatic on site colour sorter to guarantee that the quality of feedstock entering the plant is excellent.
