Investing in meat processing equipment
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
The company Silma d.o.o is located near Varaždinske Toplice. It specialises in the production of traditional domestic products, including pork meat. Demand for its products was increasing, but the company’s ability to grow was limited by its production capacity and a lack of quality control technology. The project financed the procurement of meat-processing equipment. This included electric knives for cutting meat and pallet trucks for transporting products.
Purchasing new equipment has boosted the beneficiary’s capacity, improved product quality and allowed it to enter several new markets.
The expansion has increased Silma’s annual revenue by 20%.
The investment led to the creation of two new jobs.
