New Croatian Tobacco Producer Association Formed as Growth Desired

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the goal of establishing this association is to gather together the country’s numerous tobacco producers in as many numbers as possible, because the association’s iniators believe that better association will provide their members with better and safer conditions for tobacco production.

”We want a secure future for our investments and our work in production,” stated Mihael Colak, the president of Tabacum, a new association of Croatian tobacco producers which, as he claimed, saw as many as 57 Croatian tobacco producers join, all of whom work to cultivate about 667 hectares of tobacco areas in the Podravina and Slavonia areas.

Noting that Tabacum will bring together producers who have a contract with the largest organiser of production and buyer of tobacco in the country – Hrvatski duhani, Colak said that the association is going to primarily be focused on more intensive dialogue with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the Croatian Chamber of Agriculture and aim for a much more stable and better situation for them here on the Croatian market.

“Given that tobacco is one of the most profitable agricultural crops in all of Croatia, where the annual value of production exceeds 100 million kuna, we believe that in our efforts we will be supported by counties in which tobacco is primarily produced.

We’re convinced that the further strengthening of production is in the interest of all Croatian tobacco producers,” stated the president of the Tabacum association, which will work hard to promote continued investment in new technologies, which will reduce the need to hire additional labour, increase productivity and ensure survival of the nation’s tobacco production.
