Serbia is blessed with a diversity of natural tasting fruit, growing in a sunny climate and unspoilt soil.The country grows approximately 1.5 million tonnes of fruit yearly onsome 190,000 hectares of plantations. With expanding investments in high-tech orchards and logistics infrastructure, Serbia’s modernised fruit sector is on the rise. Large-scale production and the leading role played by the fruit industry in Serbia’s economy mean that integration with EU and global markets is the logical next step.

It is made with the support of the USAID Competitive Economy Project which recognized the importance of industry consolidation and branding and marketing at the international level.
