Croatian Bureks Heading for Australia

mlinarThey already produce bureks, the popular meat, cheese, spinach or potato filled pastry, for a number of markets in Europe, now Mlinar’s brand new burek factory in the eastern Croatian city are about to ship their products over 16,000 kilometres away – to Australia…

Next week Mlinar will send off its first order to Australia, a new market for the Croatian firm, from its new purposely built burek factory in Osijek. The 5 million euro factory opened last month and produces over 430,000 bureks a day, with a capacity to do 700,000.

Currently the new factory employs 40 people, but once the new production lines are installed then over 100 people will be employed at the factory. All the ingredients for the bureks (flour, cheese, meat, potatoes, onions) are sourced from Croatia, with over 5 tonnes of cheese, 6000 kilos of potatoes and 2000 kilos of spinach used daily in the production.

The factory’s technical director Mario Popijač hopes that the bureks take off ‘downunder’.

“Next week we will send off our first container to Australia. We believe that the consumers there will like the taste and are really looking forward to the first reactions,” said Popijač.
