Establishment of the factory
The history of our company began when Heinrich Franck, an Austrian, opened the “Heinrich Franck & Sons” Coffee Surrogate Factory in Skawina. The production of roasted and ground chicory started in 1911, in the very same place where Grana company headquarters are located today. This was the beginning of cereal coffee. The company established by Heinrich Franck grew to huge success, as evidenced by employment figures. For example, in 1939, it had 658 employees and an annual production of coffee and chicory of approximately 7,500 tonnes.
