  1. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    Dear Sir or Madame,
    Three years ago, the company ULIKS from Novi Sad invested in building the green house at the very attractive location situated in the willage called Cortanovci that are 20 kilometers away from Novi Sad and 50 kilometers from Belgrade.
    The lot of land (plot) where the green house is built is 2 ha (hectares) large. All necessary infrastructure is provided there: the road, electricity, water, natural gas… The built green house is 2 500 m2 large possessing the under station for the natural gas heating with 2 Mw power. Beside that, the green house has the thermal curtain, meteorology station and the computer system. The watering system is operating by the system called “drop by drop”.
    The vegetables have been produced there for three years so the full placement of goods on the domestic market has been already provided. We are under the contract with a large Slovenian trading chain market “Merkator” to whom we are supplying 60% of our production and the rest goes to the smaller local markets.
    In the Serbian market there is no developed production of vegetables and flowers in the green houses thus providing a big opportunity to the companies who are involved in this kind of production.
    It is our intention also to engage our production capacities to produce flowers. In the first realization phase we are looking for a partner who would be able to invest means to adopt the capacities for the flower production and define the technology. The placement of goods could be in Serbia but also on the European market. If this business proves itself profitable the extension of the capacities could be also planned on the same location.
    As the company have decided to enter into the partnership with a company interested in investing and bringing the technology which could provide the bigger profit, we are at your disposal for any further quires or information that you might need.

    Yours Faitfully

Hospitals Are Getting Into The Organic Food Business

Growers investing in the organic food movement could serve a growing new area with vegetable transplants and starts, as well as produce, as hospitals begin to prescribe healthy diets and nutrition, and even go so far as to grow their own food. As part of a new phenomenon among progressive hospitals, health professionals are beginning to realize that without health and nutrition, programs and techniques may be done in vain or worse — obsolete. As more patients seeking a healthy diet turn to nutritionists, who recommend sugar-free, alkaline diets to prevent disease and aid in recovery, hospitals recognizing this trend are taking action. St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pa., recently contracted with the nearby Rodale Institute to manage an organic farm, established in 2014. The hospital, part of a six-campus network, aims to provide excellent healthcare, part of which includes educating patients about the benefits of a plant-based, organic diet. […]
