Croatian Pasta Maker Nase Klasje Opens HRK 38 Million PlantAll Articles
Croatia's leading pasta producer Nase Klasje plans to invest HRK 38 million ($5.7 million) to open a new 3000 sq m plant at its existing location in Zapresic, on the outskirts of Zagreb.
The new production plant will triple the current capacities and will facilitate the introduction of a new range of pasta next year. Nase Klasje employs 40 people and plans to hire additional 12 employees.
The company received government incentives worth HRK 15 million ($2.25 million) from European Regional Development Fund to support the development of the project.
''This investment was an example of good synergy between entrepreneurs and local government, and that it was in line with the government's policy of partnership with local government. It's important to create conditions so that companies like Nase Klasje can progress and expand production. It's the only way we can move forward, create new values and connect innovation, knowledge and tradition," said Deputy Prime Minister Davor Bozinovic.
''The company's goal was to boost exports. Over the past seven years, the company has been exporting over 35% of its product and the goal is to surpass 50%. The company exports to ten countries, from Greece to Germany, and a contract was signed last week to export to Sweden,'' said Owner and Director Zoran Simunic.
Nase Klasje is a Croatia-based manufacturer and supplier of pasta products. The company operates two factories where it produces two product groups- fresh Aurelia Tortelloni pasta and bakery raw materials. The products can be found in 10 countries from Greece to Germany. Nase Klasje was established in 2001 and is headquartered in Zagreb, Croatia.
