PROCESSING COMPLEX

1

Objective: to establish an up-to-date fish processing enterprise that will produce a wide range of original products from raw materials that will be purchased at the initial stage and own raw materials further produced at the breeding facilities under construction.

 

Location: Industrial area of Sentjernej municipality (Slovenia), not far from the planned sturgeon complex.

Growth strategy

The primary objective is launching of fish processing using purchased raw materials in the shortest possible time. It is required for quick beginning of proceeds generation.

 

The processing shop is located in the industrial zone off the sturgeon breeding complex for the purposes of expansion of space for fish breeding and for Sentjernej citizens’ peace of mind.

Milestones and deadlines

  • Milestone 1

    Construction of a processing complex

    2nd – 3rd quarters of 2018

    It includes construction of a new building for the processing complex, installation of equipment, and commissioning.

  • Milestone 2

    Launching of wieners and sausage production

    4th quarter of 2018

Sturgeon breeding complex

Objective: to establish a sturgeon breeding complex based on recirculating aquaculture systems.

 

Location:

Sentjernej municipality by the side of river Kobila (Slovenia), not far from the processing complex.

 

Peculiar feature: the sturgeon complex will be located under a sports and recreation park called Kobila Park. Our company will participate in its construction within the framework of corporate responsibility. Thermal water will be used for the production process.
