After the Koliba Company said that it planned to open a dairy factory in Rekovac, several other Slovak companies have confirmed their arrival to Serbia.
They are Tami (dairy industry), Ming (concrete products), Sofa (furniture), and Patip (targets and bulletproof vests), and they are currently searching for appropriate production locations.
Late last year, a Serbian delegation went to Slovakia to reach initial agreements with the said companies.
The Koliba Company is nearest to the implementation of its investment since it has already chosen the location in Serbia – Rekovac. Their dairy in Serbia will process sheep and goat milk, and will hire 40 people to begin with. They plan to process about 1,000 litres of milk a day in the beginning, with the plans of increasing the quantity to 5,000 litres. The company’s long-term plan is to have between 80 and 100 workers. The Slovaks have agreed to buy milk only from Serbian dairy farmers.
“Slovak companies are interested in our country because of our raw-material base, opportunities for custom-free export to Russia, and state subsidies”, says Nikola Radosavljevic who was at the helm of our delegation when they went to Slovakia.
Agreements were also reached with companies Tami, Ming, Sofa and Patip, as well as an ostrich farm Oaza. Radosavljevic says that these companies have already visited Serbia in search for appropriate locations.
