Information for suppliers

Sanitary requirements pdf

Centrum Eksportu i Logistyki Klementynka S.A. cooperates with the Klementynka cold store in the purchasing of fresh fruit and vegetables.

We are among the few on the market that do not impose any minimum deliveries. Every supplier that brings its products will be registered as our partner.

You may be our supplier if you are

– an agricultural producer

– a producer group

– a company purchasing fruit and vegetables

We also organise training in sanitary safety for our suppliers – agricultural producers – and provide agrotechnological counselling free of charge.


We accept raw materials from producers that deal in the farming of the following raw materials, especially

  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Gooseberries
  • Black currants
  • Red currants
  • Chokeberries
  • Blackberries
  • other fruit and vegetables

Delivery acceptance consists of the preliminary assessment of raw materials in their packaging. Having agreed to bilateral supply acceptance conditions the accepting party issues a GRN. Based on the Note, an invoice is issued.

What is the procedure for the preliminary assessment of raw materials?

Every delivered batch of the raw material is assessed in terms of any disqualifying features, i.e. a condition which, if present, results in the automatic refusal to accept the delivery.

It also includes an assessment of the condition of the means of transport and packaging, as well as a preliminary organoleptic assessment of the raw material’s quality (before unloading). The disqualifying features depend on the type of purchased raw material. The most-commonly used criteria include

  • unacceptable sanitary transport conditions,
  • a foreign, atypical smell,
  • an atypical taste,
  • pests or their larvae,
  • foreign bodies (wood, plastic, metal, grease, etc.),
  • frost and heat damage,
  • water-soaked raw material,
  • fermentation
  • bruised fruit
  • signs of mould


Following the preliminary assessment, a proper assessment is carried out on the basis of samples randomly collected from different parts of the batch. This assessment is based on the principle of the batch’s being the same as the samples. Suitable analyses are carried out to evaluate the conformity of the collected samples with the specification requirements – Polish Standards. The evaluated features depend on the type of purchased raw material. The most-commonly used criteria include

  • raw material uniformity
  • whether the raw material meets the minimum requirements
  • raw material size
  • the specification of the quality class
  • evaluating the raw material meticulously in terms of the disqualifying criteria,
  • performing tests using specialist equipment.

The analyses are conducted on a sample weighing 1000g, and their results are recorded in a quality- assessment report. Should the analysis prove that the raw material is of insufficient quality, we inform the supplier of the raw material’s not being accepted or being accepted in a lower quality category.
