Plans by one of the region’s largest suppliers of Polish foods to open a new facility in Newark will be allowed to move forward.

Bacik recently applied for municipal approvals in connection with its proposal to convert a property in the Lower Broadway neighborhood into a manufacturing operation. A public notice shows that the Brooklyn-based company is planning to repurpose the buildings at 185-193 Mount Pleasant Avenue in the North Ward “for warehouse and light manufacturing use,” which will include “food production and processing” on the premises.

The business is currently based in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, which has a large Polish population. The company, officially known as Bacik Company of NY, Inc., was founded in 1991 and produces everything from sauerkraut and mustard sauce to kielbasa and ham sausage. Their products tend to be found at Northeastern delis and markets.

Bacik’s application for Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances was approved in July by the Newark Central Planning Board, according to the notice.

City tax records show that the property was recently owned by the Paramount Holding Co., but the premises were listed for sale last year. The site, which stretches back to Broad Street, has contained a church in recent years.
