Italy’s La Linea Verde Group started building a vegetable processing facility in Dobrinci near Ruma today. The company will invest EUR 8 million in the factory in the first stage, and the works will have been completed in May 2017.
The plan is to employ 150 workers while various agricultural holdings will be given an opportunity to become the Italian investor’s subcontractors.
This is La Linea Verde’s sixth factory and the first one in Serbia. This is a greenfield investment, and the company will primarily produce vegetables and pack salads. The La Linea Verde does business with big supermarket chains in the EU, and their current capacity is a million packages a day.
The foundation stone was officially laid down by the state secretary of the Ministry of Economy, Dragan Stevanovic, the president of the municipality of Ruma, Sladjan Mancic, and the general manager of La Linea Verde in Serbia, Branislav Ignjatovic. The event was also attended by the assistant to the minister of agriculture, Nenad Katanic, and the deputy speaker of the Assembly of Vojvodina, Damir Zobenica.
