Qatari entrepreneurs are set to invest in Croatia’s agriculture sector by importing Croatian products and helping develop new technologies. Croatia’s Ambassador to Qatar Tomislav Bosnjak has met with the President of Hassad Food Nasser Mohammed Al Hajrija, where they agreed on four models of cooperation, reports Tportal.
Hassad Food want to invest in existing farms in Croatia or the long-term lease of land which would focus on producing products specifically for the Qatari market, such as tuna farming, beef, veal, and mutton production, poultry farming and corn and wheat production. The Qatari’s are also interested in importing from Croatian producers chilled beef, veal, top quality lamb, frozen and chilled poultry, seafood, long-lasting salamis, vegetables and processed canned foods.
“We have gathered a few dozen products from Croatian producers, from apple juice to beef, from small and large farmers and food companies. We will present the offers to interested buyers and investors from Qatar when they come to Croatia in September,” said the President of the Croatian Agricultural Chamber Mato Brlosic.
