BIMAL Opens its Doors to the Media Representatives from the Entire BiH

Datum: 17.05.2013.

Brčko, 17 May 2013 – BIMAL d.d. Brčko, the leading oil company in the market for production of top quality products from sunflower seed, soybean and rapeseed, organised the visit of the media representatives to the oil factory.

The visit comprised organised transport of the media representatives from the entire Bosnia and Herzegovina to BIMAL company headquarters, visit to the production lines and meet and greet with the management.

The aim of this event was present the company to the media representatives in an open manner by introducing them to all the production stages; from the procurement stage and admission of raw materials to the edible oil, the final product. The media representatives also had an opportunity to witness the bottling process of the primary BIMAL product, edible sunflower oil, in a newly designed packaging, which is steadily conquering the retail shops in all corners of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Deputy CEO, Mr. Mitja Kovačič gave the following statement about export and other significant segments of the company’s business operations: “We have been continually exporting 60-70% of our total production, ever since we took over the oil factory and resumed regular production 11 years ago. At the same time, we are rapidly developing our own trade operations; hence the company’s distribution requirements now exceed our present production capacities. Before last year, our export destinations were mostly countries of the European Union, but recently we started exporting our goods to the Middle East countries expecting further business development to that direction.“

On this occasion, Ms. Nataša Pucar, the Head of Corporate Communications for BIMAL d.d. stated: “BIMAL company production ranges from production of raw materials such as sunflower seed, soybean and rapeseed to the final product. The quality and health safety of our products are verified by the implemented ISO, HACCP, IFS, KOSHER and HALAL standards. In BIMAL’s laboratory more than 150 samples, from seeds to the final product, are analysed on a daily basis in the course of production of edible oil. This is the proof of quality of our oil, including BIMAL sunflower edible oil which, as of this month, is available in the BiH retail shops and markets in a newly redesigned packaging.“

BIMAL is one and only domestic edible oil produced in line with top quality standards and designed to meet the demands of both traditional and modern cuisine.

By buying BIMAL sunflower oil bottled in a new, modern packaging we support local economy. More than 200 employees of the BIMAL Company guarantee the quality of the products that this company produces.
Annual production capacity of over 40 million litres is a good indicator of this company’s quality standards and attests not only to the fact that our company is an absolute leader in this particular branch of industry in the domestic market, primarily with its BIMAL edible sunflower oil, but also that the company has marked a successful breakthrough in the regional markets such as those in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo.
