Nové Zámky will produce baby food for Muslim consumers, with all production being exported to European and Arab markets.
The project arises from an initiative of the company Novea Group from Luxembourg, which will collaborate with Slovak company Novofruct SK, the SITA newswire reported.
The production will take place at the existing Novofruct SK plant in Nové Zámky (Nitra Region), with the company securing certified production, employees, and product packaging.
“We are very pleased to find a production partner in Slovakia with the high-quality technology and high production standards that our production requires,” said Jana Gregorová of Novea Group, as quoted by SITA. “I hope that we will be able to start production of fruit and vegetable puree under our own Neyla brand in a relatively short space of time, which will later be followed by meat products.”
The products, with a special Halal certification, will be presented as part of the Slovak exposition at the Gulfood 2019 World Expo, which begins on February 17 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
“Recipes have already been designed and tested, and altogether eighteen products of different compositions and flavours will be presented to customers at the Dubai Fair,” Gregorová added, as quoted by SITA.
