The agribusiness and food processing sector is traditionally one of the strongest sectors of Macedonia’s economy. Macedonia’s EU accession process will involve substantial technical assistance and investment support funds dedicated to the sector.
The sector’s numerous competitive advantages include a unique combination of Continental and Sub-Mediterranean climates, environmentally friendly production practices, sound food processing technologies, highly qualified labor available throughout the rural areas, very good access to regional markets and a reputation for quality food products.
There are excellent opportunities for investment in fruits and vegetables – production, storage, distribution and processing industries, together with wine production and sheep and goat cheese production.
