The Parmen Zöldség-Gyümölcs Kereskedelmi és Szolgáltató Kft. was formed in 1989, and it was based in Debrecen. Initially, the main business activity of Parmen Kft was having vegetable and fruit plants produced, buying up the crop, then packing it, preparing it for export, and selling it. Among the distributed goods, the fresh precooled sour cherries in crates and the industrial horseradish were the main products.
Further on we developed lasting, reliable, long-term relationships with trading companies and canneries in Germany and Poland.
The Northern Great-Plain location of Parmen Kft. is favorable, because the area has serious traditions and significant plantation fields for the production of raw materials with excellent quality and pleasant taste.
Parmen Kft. has its own sour cherry, plum, and horseradish plantation fields. In the second half of the 1990s there was a growing demand from the customers for processed sour cherries, thus besides the fresh export, from 1998 we started the production of the 720 ml pitted sour cherry compote.
Owing to the 7-year persistent work of the specialists at Parmen Kft, in 2009 the Commission of the European Communities registered the Protected Designation of Origin of the horseradish from the Hajdúság into the Registry of Protected Designations of Origin and Geographical Indications.
