The company Przedsiębiorstwo Wyrobów Cukierniczych Odra S.A. has over 70 years of tradition and is currently among the largest confectionery companies in Poland.

The company’s headquarters is in the city of Brzeg with a population of nearly 40 thousand. The company’s history dates back to 1946, when the production of caramels and candy drops was launched. In the years 1948-1951 and 1957-1958 the production plant underwent the first two stages of development. The first stage made it possible to commence production of milk fondants, known today as the “Matylda” fudge. That period also saw the production launch of sesame halva, which is highly recognized even today.

In the years 1957-1958, as a result of the second stage of development, the production of chocolate products and candy drops was launched. Year 1970 was a period of huge changes. The company was the only one in the country to launch production of chewing gum in the form of blocks, and in 1972 also in the form of sticks.

In the years 1975-1976 the company commenced production of chocolate goods with soft casings (so called chocolate candies). The beginning of 1993 saw the start of the company’s privatization process.

In March of 1993 the Odra staff established a limited liability company which in May that year was entered into the Commercial Register.

At the beginning of February 1994 the former enterprise functioned as Przedsiębiorstwo Wyrobów Cukierniczych Odra Sp. z o.o. in Brzeg. In 1996 the production of “Fructo” fruit drops was launched. That same year the market was introduced to the “Mini” caramels, which became a hit on the domestic market. In June of 1998 PWC “Odra” Sp. z o.o. by power of a resolution by the Meeting of Shareholders was transformed into a stock company.

Currently Odra’s range of products is especially impressive – encompassing over 100 product types, including: hard caramels, caramels with filling, chocolate products, milk fondants, chews, dragees, halva and sesame snaps.
