COMPANY PROFILE

 

ARIX a.s. is an important Czech firm on the hops and hop-related products market.

 

Its capital and personnel ties with major Czech hop growers, its finances, and the many years of experience and contacts of the company’s management all make ARIX a.s. a reliable business partner.

The company’s main sphere of business is the production and sale of the renowned Czech variety Žatecký poloraný červeňák (Žatec Semi-early Red). Owing to its tradition, quality and uniqueness, this variety is used by the world’s leading breweries to make the most prestigious brands of beer.

 

One important thing that makes ARIX a.s. different is that it does not just trade in Czech hops, but also plays a major role in producing them on farms with which it has capital ties.

 

PP servis a.s. is wholly linked with ARIX a.s. in terms of capital and workforce. It is the largest hop producer not only in the Czech Republic, but in the whole of Europe. Hops are grown here on a total area of 387 ha, mostly in the renowned locations of Údolí Zlatého potoka and Podlesí. 285 ha is given over to the cultivation of Žatecký poloraný červeňák, and more than 100 ha are set aside for growing the Sládek, Premiant and Agnus varieties. Approximately 2/3 of this area is irrigated.

 

TUFA s.r.o. is another farm with capital ties to ARIX a.s., and grows hops on 85 hectares. The variety is predominantly Žatecký poloraný červeňák.
