The value of the investment is EUR 60 million, and the construction should start by the end of 2017. The plan is for 300 workers to be employed in the first stage, whereas another 1,000 would be employed at a later date.
The annual production of poultry should be exported to China and the United Arab Emirates, with some quantities also available at the local market.
The Municipality of Apatin has set aside 150 hectares of land for the farm, and the agreement was signed by Mayor Milan Skrbic and Director General of Energye Svetlana Savchuk.
