Naturally, Poli divides history into time before Poli (B. P.), and after Poli (A. P). Given that the time before Poli is already very, very far away, it should suffice to say that it goes as far back as the year 1905, when Valentin Reinhard opened a buying station for poultry near Deutschlandsberg, in Ptuj, thus beginning the story of Perutnina Ptuj.
Of utmost importance and especially noteworthy is the year 1974, when Perutnina Ptuj created the first ever chicken sausage no. 1. Since its birth up until today, Poli has been demonstrating consistency in standards that are the result of top quality and impeccable manufacturing processes. For 40 years. Therefore remaining the one and only.
Poli was born
In addition to Professor Ernő Rubik’s invention of the Rubik's Cube, the ‘70s were also marked by another important event – the first and only parboiled chicken special sausage named Poli was born in Perutnina Ptuj. As soon as it was born, the proud parents Matilda Lovrenčič and Dr Ciril Varga knew that a bright future lay ahead for Poli.
Special from birth
What can we say about Poli? It was the first chicken special sausage on the market, a real avant-garde with an original recipe and superior quality. And it was the first sausage that overshadowed the sandwich. It was the first to enter politics. It became the first sausage in the form of paté. But why go on! There is only one Poli. And so it shall remain.
Is it snack time yet?
Customers were a bit suspicious initially, but later on quickly convinced by the perfectly prepared high-quality products. A school or company trip could no longer be imagined without a Poli sandwich.
Always in good company
Poli was never a loner and has always enjoyed good company. It was often seen with Pika and Koka; however, it is needless to say who had the last word.

Poli competes in a marathon
Because life is too short to miss out on it, we were turning the pedals on the first Poli Marathon in Ptuj. On that rainy day, 1000 participants attended the event, but the number has risen to over 5000 cyclists over the next couple of years. Since Poli is an undisputed nr. 1 among special sausages, the Poli Marathon also quickly became the no. 1 recreational cycling event in Slovenia.

Tuesday Poli Madness
To mark its 40th anniversary (40!), our timeless Poli enjoyed not just one, but forty insane Tuesday celebrations!
Poli embarked on this adventure together with its fans, who were April-fooled into thinking that Poli was moving to China before taking part in the cycling marathon; they even went zip lining together at an adventure park. On its anniversary, Poli took the opportunity to celebrate its anniversary with Poli burgers and Poli sandwiches for the night-shift workers and for people on the move. Poli not only made sure that the music was nostalgic and fitting for birthday celebrations, with the tunes played dating back to the time when Poli was created, they also joined forces with chilli for the colder months of the year. Imagine the celebrations that are in store for Poli’s Golden Jubilee! ;)
