The president of the Republic of Croatia visited Žito group
As a part of her visit to Slavonia during this weekend, the president of the Republic of Croatia Kolinda Grabar Kitarović visited Žito Group, the leading agriculture and food industry in this part of Croatia.
With this visit, the president, accompanied by the county executive of Osijek-Baranja county Ivan Anušić, supported employers from the Slavonia region who, despite difficulties, develop and employ new workers, among them Žito group, Osijek brewery and Saponia. The Group with its 1600 employees and 3000 subcontractors strives every day to empower the economy and improve demography of the eastern part of Croatia and is therefore recognized as one of the most successful companies and positive entrepreneurial practices in Slavonia.
During her visit to Žito Group, the president visited the prosciutto production plant where 150 000 prosciuttos per year are being produced and was introduced to the whole process of producing DOBRO meat products. After the visit, the president had the opportunity to enjoy those products in Crna svinja restaurant, also owned by Žito Group.
It was a great pleasure to welcome the president and to show that in Slavonia, using state-of-the-art technologies, we can produce high quality products, hire and export.
