More Advanced Technology and Contract Farming Strengthen Agribusiness

Meet Albini SHPK, a center collecting vegetables from the region of Podujeva since 2009, and a partner of Swisscontact's Promoting Private Sector Employment project in Kosovo since 2017.

The collaboration took off with support in conducting market research for the business and with raising the awareness of farmers of that region to improve traditional irrigation practices for better and higher quality of yield. Through this agreement, Albini SHPK will acquire a weighing and packaging line for fresh carrots that will be sold to both local and foreign markets. The advanced technology will assist the company to increase its aggregation capacities, improve product packaging to enable expansion into international market and increase the number of contracted farmers and their income.
