AGRO IRIS d.o.o.


AGRO IRIS is a socially responsible enterprise created to help small- and medium-sized agricultural producers from rural areas. Our enterprise is formed as a cooperative gathering more than 20 families under one brand of dried fruits and vegetables called ZaDruga (ForFriend). Our producers harvest the finest fruits from their family orchards, and ZaDruga uses the modern methods to dry and pack products without adding artificial flavours and additives.

In addition to a healthy and quality product, ZaDruga provides the opportunity to contribute to improving the living conditions of small agricultural producers as the majority of the profit from the social enterprise is returned to farmers through the purchase of their raw fruits and vegetables at an increased price, while the remaining profit is invested in expanding sales and production capacities.
