DEAR BAKERS AND CONFECTIONERS,
the beginning of our business is intrinsically linked with Sesame Bakery in Opava and the time when the market faced a lack of bakery products. At that time, three Opavian people in their forties decided to bake totally non-traditional products in their town. Sesame Bakery began to produce several types of wholemeal-sprinkled rolls and loaves of bread made with non-traditional cereals, and the bakery daily faced long queues. Bread from Sesame was very popular and soon attracted the interest of competing bakeries. They wanted to know the secret of such success; they longed for baking mixes to make such good bread. Thus SEMIX (SEeeds + MIX) was established in 1995.
Conditions for the business, however, were not very ideal at the time of its founding. SEMIX started mixing literally under “garage conditions” and had to produce very little. The initial several hundred kilograms of flour mixed for other bakeries soon increased to thousands, and a gradually built network of sales representatives helped the company to enter the domain of fillings and bakery products as well. This year we celebrate 21 years of successful operation. Reflecting on this period, we can be satisfied. We have 200 employees, affiliate branches in Poland, Hungary and Slovakia, and a sophisticated system of sales and technical support. We produce unique products, many of them the only ones in the industry. Thanks to a cereal production line, we have products that are completely different from those of the competition. We operate on our own newly built premises and we are certified by the highest standards: HACCP, IFS, BIO, and KOSHER.
Environmental protection also became one of our priorities. Near the village of Raduň, we take care of a unique wetland habitat for amphibians where annually, on Earth Day, we organize guided tours; near the village of Krčmaň, we care for an abandoned limestone quarry which we maintain in a condition to be the most beneficial to butterflies and plants; and our latest project is the restoration of pools and revitalization of the wetland of Kozmické louky (Kozmice Meadows) in the area of Opavian Silesia.
Welcome to SEMIX !
SEMIX CARES ABOUT NATURE
Quarry in Krčmaň
Since 2008 we are taking care of the abandoned
limestone quarry, amazing natural landmark near
the village Krčmaň. The landscape character
matches to the steppe. In this area are preserved
remains of heat- and xerophytic vegetation and
limestone rock communities with the occurrence of
rare flora and remarkable fauna. Demanding insect
species that are disappering from the cultural
landscape like Skippeer, burnet moths, Large blues
had found here a sanctuary. Even rare smooth snake
loves to bask on sunny rock-garden. In the past this
landscape was mainly threatened by direct
industrial and agricultural use, flushing of fertilizers
and pesticides imissions from the surrounding fields.
Thanks to creation of protection zone, regular grass
cutting and trees removal, we have managed to
reduce these adverse effects. It has to be kept the
way it is for the next generations to enjoy.
In 2005 we had an opportunity to buy and restore
natural area in our company´s neighbourhood. Our
aim was to create such natural processes that occur
in the wild nature. Nowadays, in previously
extensively used area of 1,4 hectares, a complex of
ponds and wetlands can be seen, allowing the local
amphibians and aquatic vegetation to achieve
ecological stability that is necessary for their life.
Many frogs, grass snakes, birds and butterflies had
found here a place for living.
Kozmice storks and herons
Our latest project is located near the village Kozmice in Opava region. We are finalizing the creation of a large wetland habitat for amphibians, where will be permanently flooded lakes in the area of 12 hectares in combination with periodically flooded surfaces.
Moreover, there will be observation and wintering site for amphibians. We want to provide sanctuary for animals which, due to agricultural use of landscape and its devastation, cannot find a peaceful place for living in the wild nature. We would be glad if our
grandchildren will have a chance to see a stork, a heron or a dragonfly in the wild nature.
