The investor is a Greek company which has already opened a similar factory in the town of Pernik, Bulgaria, where the workers from Serbia will receive their training – the Infovranjske website reports.
“The factory will produce about two tonnes of fine, quality sweets a day, according to Italian and Greek recipes,” says Nenad Krstic, mayor of Trgoviste.
90% of the raw materials used in the production will be locally sourced – milk, butter, sugar, flour, and eggs, which will come from a poultry farm in Novo Selo. The remaining 10% of the components are various types of condiments for sweets that will be imported from Italy.
Interestingly, in addition to the opening of the factory, a small pig farm will be opened in Trgovište, which re-use 100 kilogrammes of various types of waste from the confectionery factory a day.
As previously announced, the total investment in this plant will be about 2 million euro; the Serbian government will provide 50% of the funds and the other 50% will come from the local government which had already purchased and renovated the former carpet factory Simpo for these purposes.
