Description of the association
Association of apple producers "Cacanska jabuka" was established in 2006 with headquarters in Donja Trepca, Cacak. The Association was established with the basic goal of protecting the individual producer. Agricultural producers from the region of Cacak recognized the importance of a common appearance on the market, but also the need for joint construction of storage capacities, so in 2006 they founded the Association of apple producers "Cacanska apple". Then they started a joint venture in cooperation with the Institute for fruit growing, with the financial support of the Ministry of Agriculture, Trade, Forestry and Water Management and the city of Cacak. The 1250t fridge was built with ULO equipment.
The aim of the association is to enable the inclusion of a larger number of fruit growers in the Cacak region in organized and technologically modern fruit production, as well as expanding their own fruit in accordance with the legislation and export of fruit to the countries of the Russian Federation and the EU country. Based on the requirements of the listed countries in terms of assortment and fruit quality. The development and continued investment of members of the association is enabled from own investments and with the support of projects and part of the stimulative funds of line ministries and local self-government.
