Refurbishment of the family-owned dairy processing plant in Romania
CAP funds were used by a family-owned dairy processing plant to modernise its production facilities and introduce a merchandise management software.
The Badea family are the owners of a dairy processing plant which continues a long tradition of cheese production in the Brăduleț commune located at the foot of the Southern Carpathians. The family used financial support from the 2014-2020 Rural Development Programme to modernise and expand the production capacity of the plant. In addition, the family invested in a merchandise management software to keep track of orders and store data according to season, customer preferences and location.
The investment to the dairy processing plant increased production capacity by 25% and sales by 43%.
The company’s processing capacity of fresh and acidophilic products has risen from 4 700 litres to 6 800 litres (an increase of approximately 45%).
The company’s overall cheese processing capacity has risen from 7 550 litres to 8 525 litres (an increase of approximately 13%).
Thanks to the project, five new jobs were created.
