In the fifth edition of the ‘We care for the Polish land’ customer lottery run by Grupa Azoty, the grand prize, a John Deere 5075E tractor, went to Eugeniusz from Gostyń County in the province of Poznań. This year’s lottery saw nearly 43,000 entries, an increase of more than 261% over 2018 when Grupa Azoty’s lottery was first held.
The keys to the tractor were presented to the winner by Tomasz Hryniewicz, Vice President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty S.A. and President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty Puławy, and Adam Małysz, President of the Polish Ski Association. Grupa Azoty is a long-standing partner of the Polish Ski Association, providing support to Polish ski jumpers, cross-country skiers, and other athletes.
This year’s ‘We care for the Polish land’ lottery ran from February 1st to April 30th 2022. Customers who purchased any fertilizer product offered by Grupa Azoty for at least PLN 1,000 (VAT-inclusive) and submitted their entry by sending a text message or registering on a dedicated website had a chance to win the grand prize or one of the 300 instant prizes of PLN 1,000. In addition, a cash prize of PLN 10,000 was drawn at the end of each month of the lottery. Three such prizes went to winners from the provinces of Bydgoszcz, Poznań and Kielce.
The number of lottery entries is rising by the year. This year, participation increased 31% on the previous edition and 73% on the 2020 edition. These numbers are primarily driven by the simple rules of participation in the lottery. All you have to do is buy Grupa Azoty’s fertilizer, register and wait to win. The lottery statistics also demonstrate that a growing number of farmers choose fertilizer bearing the logo of a Polish producer, Grupa Azoty, in line with the slogan ‘made in Poland is good’. Thank you for buying our products, and congratulations to all winners’, said Tomasz Hryniewicz, Vice President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty S.A. and President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty Puławy.
Most lottery entries were from farmers in the provinces of Lublin, Warsaw, Łódź and Poznań.
‘The Polish Ski Association has worked with Grupa Azoty for 11 years now. During this time our athletes could always count on the Company to support them at each stage of their careers. We are well aware this support would not have been possible without Polish farmers who buy Grupa Azoty’s fertilizer, significantly contributing to the success of our athletes,’ said Adam Małysz, President of the Polish Ski Association.
The grand prize was drawn on May 4th 2022. The winner of the lottery purchased Pulan® for just over PLN 5,000 at the peasants’ cooperative Samopomoc Chłopska in Pępowo. He entered five fertilizer purchase receipts in the lottery.
‘In addition to a small tractor that keeps breaking down, I have a larger one, but I have been thinking for a while about buying a new tractor I could attach a spreader or a sprayer to. The one I won in the lottery will be perfect for this task. Winning Grupa Azoty’s lottery confirms it’s worth choosing fertilizer products made in Poland, and not only for their proven premium quality,’ said Eugeniusz, the winner of the lottery.
