Between 13-15.02.2019 we participated in the 100-years Jubilee of the Confectionery Technicians Association (STC), combined with the 31th Post-Campaign Technical – Raw Material Conference. The Honorary Patronage over the celebrations was held by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Mr. Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski, and the Association of Sugar Producers in Poland. The event took place at the FSNT-NOT Technicians’ House in Warsaw. The jubilee was very official in nature. The guests invited included representatives of the authorities, including the Senate of the Republic of Poland, and of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and also representatives of ARM, the Association of Sugar Producers in Poland, the Association of Sugar Beet Planters, sugar companies, scientific-research institutes, and many Polish and foreign entities, and companies cooperating with the sugar industry. The jubilee is accompanied by a special release of the book 100 lat Stowarzyszenia Techników Cukrowników 1919 – 2019. “(100-Years of the Confectionery Technicians’ Association 1919 – 2019).

The organizers also prepared an exhibition of STC’s key figures and achievements. The summary of the 100-years of the Association’s operations was also covered by a jubilee lecture presented by the STC’s Executive Council Chairman – Dr. Maciej Wojtczak.

On the occasion of the Jubilee, the persons, who contributed to the development of the sugar industry in Poland, received national awards, awards of the General Technical Organization, and awards of the Confectionery Technicians’ Association. On the second day of the conference, papers were presented that covered the latest technical and technological solutions in the sugar industry, and in beet cultivation and raw materials management. Our company was represented by president Zbigniew Kominek who discussed

modern solutions in intraplant logistics for sugar refineries offered by WIKPOL Sp. z o.o.

The third day of the conference was dominated by the problems related to the current status and perspectives of the sugar industry, of the sugar market and the molasses market. We are happy that we could participate in such a momentous Jubilee. Particularly that the cooperation between Wikpol and the sugar industry has quite a long history already- it is 27 years this year since the first implementation for the Lublin Sugar Refinery. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of STC, we wish our Partners from the sugar industry further dynamic development and success.
