About PDM Agro-Fruit
Home to the sweetest fruit in the region is the small town ofPudarci, situated on the sunny banks of the Danube River, only 40 kilometres from Belgrade. In 2012, Pudarci saw the establishment of PDM Agro-Fruit, today an undisputed leader among fruit buyers, distributors and exporters across Serbia.
