Tradition inspired by naturePoljoprivredno poduzeće Orahovica (Orahovica Agricultural Company) is one of the largest Croatian producers of agricultural and food products, as well as the largest producer of freshwater fish in Croatia.
Since 1963, when it was founded, the company has specialized in the production of arable crops, grapevine cultivation, production of wine and hazelnuts, cattle breeding and fish farming and processing.
PP Orahovica is located in the pristine nature of eastern Croatia, in a region of astonishing beauty and diversity, near Papuk Nature Park (UNESCO Global Geopark).
FISH FARMING AND PROCESSING
Fishery is one of our most significant production areas. In fish ponds covering the area of almost 6,200 hectares, we farm freshwater fish for human consumption and fish fry. Panona Mare, a freshwater fish processing factory, was opened at the end of 2016 and it is the largest factory of this kind in Croatia. Under our own Panona Mare brand name, we market a line of fresh, frozen and smoked freshwater fish products, which include whole fish, fish steaks, fillets, chips, burgers, nuggets, smoked fillets and pâtés.
Grape varieties cultivated by PP Orahovica are Graševina (Welschriesling), Blue Frankish, Pinot Gris, Rhein Riesling, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Silvaner.
What makes our most awarded wine, Silvaner, so special is the unique position of vineyards of Orahovica, as well as the growing conditions and the microclimate in which grapes are cultivated. Wines produced by PP Orahovica have won numerous awards at prestigious international wine competitions. Certificates and awards such as DWWA, IWSC and Mundus Vini are proof of the quality and strict control requirements our wines have fulfilled.
PP Orahovica is the largest hazelnut producer in Croatia and the region and in its business system is the most state-of the-art hazelnut processing plant. Hazelnut varieties grown on 520 hectares are Istrian Oblong Hazelnut, European Hazelnut and Hall’s Giant. Annual production is 500-600 tonnes and it is directed to both national and international markets.
Modern processing operations ensure that all the nutrients are fully preserved without losing the recognisable, unique taste. As a proof of excellence and top-quality, Orahovica hazelnut has been awarded the Croatian Creation label.
