So many possibilities

Citronex. The greatest success is the fruit of cooperation.

Since 1998, we have moved the path from a family business to a team of effective business sub-contractors, setting the highest standards in many diverse industries. We are one of the leading companies in the TSL industry, we are dynamically developing a network of service stations under the brand of Dyskont Paliwowy and the largest network of truck washes in Poland. Our offer addressed to travelers is complemented by Picaro hotels and restaurants located in the vicinity of key communication routes.

Our biggest success is the development of bananas distribution under the Yellow brand, which we deliver daily from the largest ripening centers in Europe to the network of operators on the Polish and European market.

Since 2011, we have been dynamically developing the production and sale of tomatoes. In our greenhouses located in Siechnice, Bogatynia, and soon in Ryczywół near Kozienice, unique Polish tomatoes are grown on the area exceeding 75 hectares. It is the fruit of our passion and modern knowledge.

Nothing is impossible for us and with us.
We are Citronex.
