    The territory of Ribnik Municipality is an ecologically clean area with a long and
    successful tradition in production of berry fruits. This project involves expanding of
    the berry fruits plantation, start-up of the facilities for berry processing
    (raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries), and production of the mushy berry
    juice (app. 1 000 litres per month). The long term goal of the project is processing
    of the berry fruits up to 15 tons monthly. It is also possible to provide hail

    This project proposes building a fruit and vegetable cold storage facility that would
    include the area for receipt of goods, their refrigeration, classing, and freezing up
    to -35°С (freezing raspberries requires procurement of the so-called shock- tunnels
    for fast freezing). The potential investor would be supported by the Municipality in
    the implementation of activities by incentive funds for employment of new
    workers in the built facility. Also, the municipality will assist in establishing
    cooperative relations between the investor and producers in the territory of the
    municipality. If the investor decides to build in a business zone, they will benefit
    from the developed infrastructure and land. If they decide to build the facility in
    one of the existing community centres, the municipality will be actively involved in
    the selection of location and resolution of property ownership issues.

    This project proposes construction of the factory for drinking water bottling with
    capacity of 4 000 – 8 000 bottles (1.5 litres) per hour. Detailed studies indicate that
    production cost of the one bottle (including raw materials, labour costs, overhead
    expenses, etc.) would be 0.13 €. Taking into account the already established
    contacts with customers where the proposed price of the purchase is between
    0.22 and 0.28 € per bottle, this project is fully financially justified.

    The project proposes the cattle procurement (30 cows and 1 bull) for extensive
    breeding. Cattle will be of “Galloway” or “Angus” breeds – that are known for good
    food conversion, quiet and gentle character, late maturing, fertile and easy calving,
    and extremely resistant to the various conditions of keeping. They are kept
    outdoors all year round and do not use the barn. The cows are not milked, and all
    milk is used for calves feeding. This project plans the keeping the cattle in cow-calf
    system that provides calves for sale every year, which are very much demanded at
    the market by the meat companies - for the veal meat or for the further fattening.
    The farm has capacity to eventually expand to additional 30 cows.
