The year behind us was marked by investments and investment plans related to animal feed, production of confectionery, construction of wineries, storage spaces and cooling plants. It is quite certain that agricultural manufacturing is something that brings a higher profit than the production of raw materials, which may explain last year’s trends.
The extent of the impact of coronavirus on activities in this sector will become apparent in early 2022, when we present our 2021 retrospective.
Here we are presenting the nine investments in agriculture and food industry that eKapija’s readers found the most interesting:1. Al Dahra complex Pancevacki Rit – animal feed factory, farms, biogas power plants…Al Dahra Srbija intends to invest EUR 173 in the construction of agricultural-industrial complexes in the territories of Belgrade municipalities of Palilula and Surcin in Pancevacki Rit by the end of 2022
The first phase entails the construction of four agricultural-industrial complexes, the construction of an animal feed processing factory, two complexes of new farms for 7,500 milk cows with stables and silos and 16 independent biogas facilities, as well as the construction of a complex for farming mechanization.

A new, single-floor winery is being built, according to the project documentation, for the purposes of production, storage and final preparation of wine, and the winery complex will also have tourism purpose – the construction of a wine tasting hall is planned, and winery tours will also be organized, whereby the visitors will be able to buy wines.5.
