Six companies that received grant funds within this project presented themselves at the Jungić winery: Winery Jungić from Celinac in the wine sector, Vimar from Visoko in the meat industry, Eco cheese Pudja from Livno in the dairy sector , “Farmavit” from Ljubinje in the vegetable sector, “Poljorad” in the dairy sector, and “Trivas” from Prnjavor in the meat industry sector.

The Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to BiH, Stefano Elero, said that 82 companies in BiH were supported within this project and that support for private businesses, ie private businesses, is one of the main goals of the project.

“So far, we have invested 3.6 million euros in improving the competitiveness and development of companies, and we have paid special attention to job creation, innovation and employment of women. The most important thing is to increase competitiveness, especially in terms of innovation and modernization of the agri-food sector, to maintain employment and increase market share. “, Elero pointed out.

According to him, innovation and digitalization are something that the business sector faced, especially during the pandemic period and after, so it is very important that services can be created according to customer needs, as well as that these customers can be reached via the Internet and trade. .

“Supporting these innovations and greening production processes is precisely the new green agenda that has been adopted for the Western Balkans. We hope that the authorities will support these processes by adopting the necessary reforms to better organize the private sector, so that they can take advantage of all opportunities in the domestic and international markets. “, Elero concluded.

The manager of the “EU for Business” project, Ismar Ćeremida, pointed out that such projects are important for the BiH economy, especially for the agriculture and food industry sector, which is in some ways neglected, although it is important for the BiH economy and contributes seven percent to total GDP. u.

“All companies supported by this project have increased employment. Employment is primary, but it is important to increase the competitiveness of companies that will demand and improve the quality of their products will need to hire new people in the long run., said Ceramida.

He added that this is a long-term development strategy within the private sector, which by strengthening its competitiveness will enable people to be employed, to have better jobs, to have good working conditions and not to leave the country, to stay here and build their future.

In addition to the promotion of successfully realized investments of the beneficiaries of this project, a presentation on the topic “Importance of modernization of processing capacities in the agri-food sector – challenges and perspectives” was organized today in Celinac. Roe deer
