Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, July 27, 2020 – The Croatian Association of Farmers (H.U.P.) on Monday proposed that the local authorities in Osijek-Baranja County should buy the dairy plant in Osijek which the current owner, Meggle, is going to close by the end of this year.

According to the proposal sent by the association to County Prefect Ivan Anusic and local councillors, the county should set up a company that can buy the Meggle plant and upon the stabilisation of its business, the plant should be offered for sale to the current 160 employees in the factory and contract farmers.

Recently Meggle announced that it would shut down its plant in Osijek.

After that, the Dukat company expressed its interest in buying up milk from Meggle contract farmers.

Dukat recalls that it cooperates with more than 2,000 small, medium, and big milk producers throughout Croatia.

“Milk production in Slavonia must not cease,” says Dukat, a Zagreb-based company. 

A few days ago Agriculture Minister Marija Vuckovic and local authorities held a meeting with Meggle executives. After the meeting, the minister reassured all 280 contract farmers in the Osijek area that the buying up of their dairy products would continue.

Vuckovic said that contract farmers of Meggle Croatia should rest assured that the buying up of their products would continue. The 280 contract farmers have between 25,000 and 26,000 kilos of milk for sale. Dukat’s representatives also attended the meeting.
