AGROKOR'S HUNTING GROUNDS WORLD-BEST IN 2000

The Croatian State-Owned Hunting Ground Garjevica, run under concession by Agrokor, has been granted the "Edmond Blanc" annual award by the International Council for Hunting and Wildlife Preservation (CIC) as the best managed hunting ground in 2000 worldwide. The award for the hunting ground with the best achievements last year was presented to the President of Agrokor's Management Board Ivica Todorić at the end of the CIC Annual Assembly held from May 1-5, 2001 in Portorož, Slovenia. As the leading international organization assembling hunters' associations, individuals, government representatives in charge of hunting and scientists from 80 countries of the world, CIC pays special attention to nature preservation and works closely together with the International Association for the Preservation of Nature and Natural Resources. In granting the award for the world-best hunting ground, particular attention is paid to the compliance with high environmental standards and the resolutions of the Association for Nature Preservation. The hunting ground Garjevica, under concession with Agrokor since 1992, provides 15,000 ha of hunting area, where deer, wild boar, roe deer, mouflon and other small game are bred.
