Swisslion moves to Trebinje but does not leave Croatia

Wednesday, 07/11/2012|15:33 | Source: Fena

Swisslion plans to relocate part of production to Trebinje, however, it will not leave Croatia regardless of the fact that its owner Rodoljub Drašković repeatedly stated not being satisfied with business conditions in Croatia.

The relocation of part of production is explained by Croatia’s entry into the European Union, which will lead to changes in sales regime of Swisslion’s products in CEFTA countries because of increased customs duties.

Other Croatian companies face similar problems, especially the Rovinj Tobacco Factory, where the export duty on cigarettes will be increased from 15 to 55 percent, reports.

According to the latest information from Swisslion, production in the plant in Sisak should continue in the fall and they will decide which products will emerge from its plants.

Allegedly, 11 full-time employees will keep their jobs and adjust the plant for production of eurokrem, baby food and maybe flips.

The Swisslion Multinational Group was established in 1997 and it employs 10.000 workers in Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia.

Mid-2008 Drasković bought the Euro Food Market, specialized in jaffa cakes production, in Sisak from Elmir Klaić for 20 million.

The factory in Sisak produced the cakes under its private brand for home trade and exported them under its own brand to the markets of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Slovenia, UK and Australia, and it also negotiated with buyers in Sweden, Iceland and France.
