On the verge of closureThis article was originally published in Foodnews
BOSNIA and Herzegovina's only producer of dehydrated vegetables, Semberka, is on the verge of closing its doors. Vladimir Pekic writes: the company's annual losses amount to EUR1.2 million (USD1.6 million) and for the past two years Semberka has not paid salaries to all employees. During the autumn 2010 campaign the plant managed to produce only 300 tonnes of dehydrated vegetables; insufficient for normal operations. Director Svetlana Manojlovic claimed that Semberka has not received expected support from the government.
