History of Indykpol starts in 1951 with the establishment of an Agency of Eggs and Poultry Central in Olsztyn. Thirteen years later the plant was separated from the Central and the autonomous Olsztynskie Zakłady Drobiarskie are established. The growth of the company required significant changes which included, among other, the need to integrate the areas of raw materials, production and processing with the ongoing processes of concentration and specialization of production.
The recipe for success was to specialize in turkey production and to realize large-scale production of turkey meat products. In 1990, during the period of great political, social and economic changes in Poland, Indykpol also changed. Two autonomous plants were separated from the Company: The Poultry Plant in Iława and the Breeding Center in Frednowy which (renamed as the Turkey Breeding Center - OHI) became part of the Indykpol Capital Group once again in 2004. The return of the Breeding Center turned out to be an astute move as control over the OHI enables Indykpol to offer meat of the highest quality.
1991 was the year of great changes. The Olsztyńskie Zakłady Drobiarskie was privatized and started business activities under the business name of Indykpol. Apart the assets from the liquidated state company, the capital was provided by Rolmex S.A., Anrol S.A., and Lattinane Investment Ltd. Privatization was a definitive step forward as the ineffective state-owned company was replaced by an enterprise which quickly became one of the leaders on the poultry market.
As time passed, Indykpol turned its attention to acquisition of capital for investments and opening new markets. A chance presented itself in the form of the stock market. On December 1, 1993 the company changed its organizational form and since then operates as Indykpol Spółka Akcyjna (Joint-Stock Company). After the successes in 1991 and 1993, the company was set to achieve more and on April 21, 1994, Indykpol became the first public company in the whole Warmińsko-Mazurskie region. In October 1994 the shares of Indykpol S.A. were first quoted on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Thanks to public subscription, the capital of the company grew and it was able to introduce new production solutions, extend its resource base and grow its distribution range.
After four years on the stock exchange, Indykpol S.A. decided to join the process of consolidation of the poultry market. After acquisition of blocks of shares in Eldrob S.A. and Lubdrob S.A., Indykpol became the leader of a capital group composed of poultry enterprises.
