„Farmers miss inspiration. Agricultural sector must change and be product innovative. There are some key questions which demand the start of practical solutions such as land consolidation, electronical education of the farmers, question of branding and practical connection of green and blue Croatia.“, said the president of the organizational board of the conference, Mr. Danijel Koletić.
The goal of the conference is also connecting different sectors, so last year HENIEKEN Croatia has founded Club of barley producers Karlovačko in partnership with Agricultural and food complex and Agricultural food institute Osijek. HENIEKEN Croatia has started the project of procurement of Croatian barley for production of Karlovačko beer three years ago. That project supports domestic agriculture and production of barley beer. Karlovačko, top quality beer, is proud of the fact that is made from entirely home grown Croatian barley.
The goal of the conference is to bring conclusion which will be presented as a document of agricultural strategy and decisions and will be sent to The Agriculture Committee of the Croatian Parliament.
