The capacity of the Andrijaševci 2 farm includes 1400 sows with an annual production of 33 000 piglets for fattening. Keeping up with the latest achievements in pig farming, the Andrijaševci 2 farm is equipped with the most up-to-date production technology, and special attention has been given to ecological standards, also evidenced by two closed manure tanks of 9000 m3 total capacity. Technological solutions are compatible with all requirements under the Law on Animal Protection, the Regulations on conditions to be satisfied by farms and those for protection of animals on farms.
Investments in buildings, infrastructure and latest equipment amount to HRK 40 million and the farm is fully tailored to meet modern ecological requirements and regulations of ISO and GLOBAL GAP standards. The biological safety measures and conditions of animal health on the Andrijaševci 2 farm are on the highest level possible, enabling top global results and contributing to quality control in preservation of the environment. With today’s opening of the Andrijaševci 2 farm, Agrokor’s annual production of pigs has increased by 33 000 home-produced pigs for fattening, representing another step forward in reducing the need for imports of pork.
