Dutch-Macedonian joint venture Gresto had a groundbreaking ceremony in Ruma, Serbia, marking the beginning of the construction of their logistics centre and a greenhouse.
According to the announcements, the facility should be finished by this summer. The investment, in its first phase, is worth EUR 2 million.
The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by the Minister of Agriculture, Branislav Nedimovic, the Mayor of Ruma, Sladjan Mancic, the representatives of Gresto, and representatives of the Netherlands and North Macedonia embassies.
Gresto is a logistics project that was implemented as a result of 20 years of collaboration between the Netherlands’ KG Greenhouse and Macedonian partner Balkan Greenhouse, that are both the investors and Gresto’s owners.
Aside from the logistics centre in Ruma, a pilot greenhouse will also be built for training and presentation purposes.
