Evrosad d.o.o. Krško started to actively conduct business on 1 January 1996, after concluding a sales-purchase agreement with Mercator - Agrokombinat Krško d.o.o. in 1995 which was in accordance with the agreement and all legitimate decisions. In our business plan we set ambitious and daring goals, in accordance with given and then known conditions. Despite difficult management conditions we overcame the first three years of business, with difficulty and yet successfully. Today we produce 10,000 tons of fruit on 250 ha net land.
In September 2000 Sadjarstvo Blanca d.o.o. was incorporated which is connected with Evrosad. They produce 3,500 tons of fruit on 120 ha net land annually, and production is expected to increase to 5,000 tons per year.
Sadjarstvo Ormož d.o.o. became an integral part of the group in autumn 2011. They currently have 140 ha net land and produce over 4,000 tons of fruit, with the possibility to expand the land to 190 ha.
We have been cooperating with fruit growers from the Posavje region for over ten years and in the recent years we expanded our cooperation to fruit growers from all over Slovenia. We have agreements concluded with them for purchase of apples, pears and peaches. They are our contractual producers; the total area on which they produce 3,500 tons of fruit is 150 ha. We, all together, constitute the EVROSAD GROUP. We sell the fruit produced by us or our contractual producers under the “Evrosad” brand.
