Development and modernisation of the TAF PRESS OIL processing unit

An EAFRD funded investment project to modernise a farm business and support the launch of a high-quality range of organic oils.

Project summary: 

Felicia Tulai took over her family business, which produced sunflower oil in the Luna commune of Cluj County. Felicia applied for support from the Romanian Rural Development Programme to modernise and diversify her business. Investment support enabled the business to expand its range of organic oils, securing local jobs and stimulating agricultural production.

Project results: 

The company has expanded its range of certified organic oils with five more products: sunflower, hemp, pumpkin, rapeseed, and walnut.

Bottling and labelling capacity has increased from 700 bottles/day up to 1 000 to 2 000 bottles/hour.

Having its own vehicle means the company can now respond directly and at reduced cost to the needs of their 25+ partner stores across Transylvania.

No new jobs were created through this investment, but nine existing jobs have been sustained.
