Granolio Ltd. was founded in December 1996 with its headquarters in Zagreb. The company business was initially based on wheat trade, mill products, meat and livestock, animal feed components and edible and vegetable oils. From 1997 to 2001 the company recorded a constant growth of turnover, employment and profits.
In April 2001, with the purchase of a mill and a silo in the Gornji Draganac (near Čazma), Granolio Ltd. entered a new stage of development, reorienting from predominantly trading activities to production. It significantly increased the production capacity of the Farina mill, and has become a significant market factor through its quality approach to the market.
Granolio Ltd. bought the mill in Veliki Kopanici in 2003, increasing the existing capacity, and thereby becoming the largest producer of mill products in Croatia. In mid-2004, the company introduced quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 norm and HACCP system, thus gaining even greater credibility and confirming the high quality of its products.
That same year, the company bought silos capacities in Slavonski Brod, thus ensuring quality storage of raw materials. Last year, the company ground a total of around 100,000 MT of wheat, which equates to about 20% share of the Croatian market. The company employs more than 100 people, has never been blocked, timely fulfilling all its obligations towards the state budget, creditors and suppliers, and is continually investing in the modernization of its production facilities and compliance with the highest standards of the food industry.
