Innovative cereal beverage for children

In January 2019, we started a project aimed at developing innovative cereal beverage for children aged 2-3 years. The product will feature a reduced amount of impurities and increased nutritional value, adapted to the nutritional needs of young children. The developed recipe will be a new product category.

The project is co-financed by European Funds. Project budget: 2 120 082,87 PLN,  EU co-financing: PLN 1,103,726.83

The Allergy & Free From Show

The Allergy & Free From Show in London (7-9 July 2017) and Liverpool (4-5 November 2017) is a great way to meet current and potential Barleycup customers. For decades, Barleycup has been available on the shelves of health food shops on the UK. The crowds get bigger every year, and include consumers with gluten-free diets and food intolerances, vegetarians and vegans, and those who value healthy living and eating. Our cereal and chicory drinks, Barleycup and Chicorycup, which are certified by Coeliac UK (a charity for people with coeliac disease), are not only a response to the needs of consumers with specific nutritional requirements, but of those who are looking for caffeine-free alternatives to coffee and tea. During the fairs, consumers had the opportunity to sample our products, and buy them for discounted prices. The fairs were attended by 37,000 in London, and 11,000 in Liverpool.

Anuga – 7-11 October 2017

In October 2017, GRANA presented its offer of cereal and chicory drinks at the Anuga International Food Fair. This five-day fair takes place every two years in Cologne, and is the largest event of its kind in the world. GRANA’s products were displayed at the CAFEA Group’s stand, where we promoted our latest blends of coffee substitutes based on barley, rye and chicory. Over 700 exhibitors from over 100 countries, as well as around 165,000 visitors, demonstrate that Anuga is a world-class event for consumers and representatives of the food industry.

Our history

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 the company headquarters are located today.

Grana today

Grana is the world’s biggest company producing caffeine-free beverages based on cereals and chicory. Each year, we sell thousands of tons of our blends to customers from all over the world. We invest in the development of our employees, research and development activity, and production facilities. We aim at expanding our specialised range of soluble products, and constantly strive to improve implementation of our company’s strategic objectives.


We pay great attention to the quality of our products, and are committed to constantly improving our company processes. Both regular audits by certification companies and our system of internal control ensure that we meet all norms and standards.
