Croatia’s first non-GMO soybean processing plant is being built in Vukovar-Srijem County in the eastern part of the country.
Croatia’s soybean producers recently attended a presentation about the Croatian Centre for GMO-free soybean processing. The project will cost 1.4 million kuna ($225,876). The facility will process 30,000 tons of Croatia’s non-GMO soybeans per year.
Non-GMO soybeans and soybean meal are seeing strong demand in Europe as the EU aims to reduce dependence on imports of genetically modified soy.
According to Andrija Matic, agriculture director for Vukovar-Srijem County, the project will facilitate the labeling of Croatia’s non-GMO soybeans and help the country’s soybean farmers earn premium prices.
Construction of the processing plant is scheduled to begin later this year.
