In this article Katarzyna Salomon and Marek Bielski from "Rzeźnik Polski" interview Mr. Piotr Mikulec the CEO of Rubin Sp. z o.o.
Rubin Food Group is a Rubin Beef company which scope of activity is partioning of beef meat. Mipol company, which is also owned by our family, provides the slaughter service for Rubin Beef.
Our partioning plant is based in Myślachowice. This location, in a beautiful surrounding of nature is as a huge plus. Close proximity to the A4 highway guarantee a suitable transportation and ontime delivery in best conditions. The slaughterhouse is located in Moszczenica.
The idea for activity in beef sector is a continuation of work initiated by my parents who started with pork slaughtering and portioning in the 90s. The company was developing slowly, focusing primarily on the quality of the product. In 2004, my parents built a new plant. My interest in the meat industry developed from an early age, as young children, together with my brother, we were eager to engage in the activity of the plant. When we grew up, we decided to continue our family business, and this is how in 2013, after the purchase of the plant in Myślachowice, the Rubin company was established. Our primary focus is beef which keeps getting more popular in Poland.
We currently employ 90 people. For the most part, these are young people but with great experience. For example, our production manager is 26 years old and he gained experience with his father, who also works in such a position. We put great effort to the training of our employees and constantly strive to improve the production process. We improve the qualifications of the crew and try to adapt their skills and talents to market requirements and customer expectations. We believe that the development of our staff is the development of the entire company. I would like to point that work in the plant is not an easy one. In the case of beef, it is difficult to automate processes, so the qualified staff is the key to succeed.
Key elements of our offer are: porterhouse steak, t-bone steak, tomahawk, New York steak, tournedos, antrykot steak, tenderloin steak, sirloin steak and burger mix. We also offer a various wholesale products.
Our meat meets highest world and European standards. Our customers are based in Portugal, France, Spain and Germany. We also export outside the Union, to China or Japan. In Poland, we are available on the wholesale market, in shop chains, but we focus mainly on the HoReCa market.

· Rubin Logistics deals with the transportation. What are the advantages of own transport fleet?
Our own transport also means greater security and independence from external conditions. We have our own car fleet, thanks to which we can be independent distributors. All our vehicles are regularly inspected and the equipment is regularly replaced. We are sure that all machines are efficient and safe for products, and therefore also for consumers. All this gives us the guarantee that the ordered goods will reach the customer on time. The most important aspect of transport in our company is that the transported products are kept at exactly the same temperature as it was during the entire production process.
· What are your current investment plans?
Currently, we are starting the construction of cold stores. In connection with new needs related to the development of brands, we have started a new project to expand the plant and cold stores.
Our company motto is: "Quality and experience build trust." We care about the details and convenience of the client. We owe our current position on the market to hard work and consistency. Equally important is caring for the smallest details of the company's work. In our opinion, details are of great matter, and in a competitive market they can decide about success or failure. We carefully analyze our methods, procedures and activities.
