The aim of increasing the level of product safety, as well as the need to ensure the safe supply of quality raw materials, contributed to Strela's developmental path in recent years.
Since 2012, Strela has been making significant efforts to form own plantations. On a total area of 84ha, sour cherries and plums are planted.
Sour cherry Oblacinska is planted on 60ha in 6 different locations nearby the coldstore. On one of the plots, there is a sour cherry in the conversion period and will be soon certified as an organic product.
The plums extend to about 24ha, and three different varieties are planted:
- Stanley is on approx. 15 ha
- Cacanska Lepotica is on approx. 7 ha
- Cacanska Rodna is on approx. 2 ha
All plantations are GLOBAL GAP certified and represent the source of the raw material that is strictly controlled treated and safe for end consumers.
