Nestle opens a factory in Serbia – 220 new jobs

President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić attended the opening of a Nestle factory for the production of plant-based meals in the Belgrade municipality of Surčin.

Nestle’s country manager for Serbia, Montenegro, and North Macedonia, Marjana Davidović, said that the construction of the factory had been underway for two years.

“We want to grow products locally, process them and then export to the European Union market. More than 80 million euros have been invested in the factory. The project created 220 new jobs and we expect that there will be more expansions,” Davidović added.

“Serbia is logistically a very important place, we are in the heart of Europe and very well connected with partnerships for further product development,” added Alessandro Zanelli, head of South and Eastern Europe market at Nestle.

Ambassador of Switzerland to Serbia, Urs Schmid, said that bilateral trade between the two countries has reached almost one billion euros per year.

With the construction of the plant-based meals factory which will produce a range of products from the GARDEN GOURMET brand, Nestle expanded its range of top-quality products, remaining consistent with global goals to preserve nature and fight climate change, according to the company.

In addition to the president of Serbia, Belgrade Mayor Aleksandar Šapić, Minister of Agriculture, Jelena Tanasković, and Minister of Environmental Protection, Irena Vujović, were also present at the ceremony.
