Peppers in Sour Cream, the most famous product of the dairy company Milkop, has already found its way to the buyers in Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and the EU countries. In order to boost exports to most European countries, this dairy company in Raska has recently started the construction of a new contemporary production facility.
- The entire production process in the new 3,000-square-meter facility will be fully in compliance with the European standards. Our aim is to get a permit to export all our products to the European Union. The new facility will enable us to modernize the production process, develop some new products, maintain the quality of old products and preserve a traditional recipe. We also expect to hire new workers - Zorica Djordjevic, marketing and sales manager at Milkop, told eKapija.
Milkop's core activity is the purchase of milk and the production of dairy products. The dairy's mission is to offer dairy products prepared in a traditional way from raw materials from the ecologically clean territory of Kopaonik, Golija, Pester and other intact areas.
Milkop was founded in 1997 by its owner Bojan Premovic. At first, this dairy was purchasing only 900 liters of milk a month. Thanks to great enthusiasm and hard work, Milkop has been developing constantly. A new milk purchase and processing technology has been introduced. Throughout its history, Milkop has been moving from smaller to bigger facilities, thus increasing the volume of production and number of workers and expanding its product portfolio.
The dairy today processes 80,000 liters of milk a day and employs over 150 people from the municipalities of Raska and Kraljevo. Milkop's products are available to customers all around Serbia and in certain surrounding countries, such as Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia.
