SBF: THE FUTURE IS IN HALAL AND ORGANIC FOOD, 40 MILLION KM FOR GRAINS, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

The first organized panel held at Terme Ilidža is accompanied by the theme on the food sector in the region. In this panel, eight representatives from domestic and regional companies participated presenting and sharing their experience related to the current developments in the sector, as well as the potential that is more than obvious.

Adis Hasaković, the AS GROUP representative said that the biggest portion of the groups revenues come from the food production. “This year we will spend 40 million BAM for the purchase of primary agricultural products – grains, fruits and vegetables. We are willing to spend all 40 million here in BiH in order to help domestic producers, but how much we will succeed in that is another question. This is a message to those who plan to invest in BiH that systems and brands who can bear this great production here really exist”, explained Hasaković.

Among the participants was also Mladen Andrić from Perutnina Ptuj, who said that the fastest growing food markets in the world are the ones coming from the sectors of Halal and organic production, which opens up new potential for the development of the BH economy in that direction.
