Leading Croatian shoe manufacturer Ivančica from the northern town of Ivanec have for a number of years been successfully exporting to demanding markets around the world. According to the N1, workers at the plant produce thousands of pairs of high-quality shoes daily, and over 1 million pairs annually.
Most of shoes produced in Croatia are exported, with exports increasing since Croatia joined the EU. This year exports to Germany have tripled. Besides Germany, Ivančica exports to more than 20 countries around the globe, including some big markets such as the UK, France, Austria, USA, Canada and Asia. From its humble beginnings nearly 70 years ago, Ivančica has developed into a major company, employing over 800 people today.
