Liri NPT is a sole proprietorship that has been producing sweets and biscuits in the city of Prizren since 1985.
The traditional family business produces more than 121 individual products in the categories Turkish Delight, biscuits, wavers, chocolate, bonbons, Helva, and caramels. The company certainly kept up with changes and developments over the past 35 years and is already certified for ISO 22000:2005 and HACCP. Liri products are also exported to North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy and the UK.
To ensure its continuous competitiveness in Kosovo and in its international export markets, the company decided to invest in new machinery for some products to improve quality and shapes whilst reducing waste and energy consumption. Additional benefits include improved occupational health and safety as a result of a higher level of automation.
With the help of the Kosovo SME Competitiveness Support Programme, the company invested in eight new production and packaging machines.
Liri received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and is completing the project implementation. Once the project has been successfully verified the company can expect a 15% cash-back, funded by the European Union.
With the investment, the company now meets a wide variety of European standards, including:
Expected Grant amount
EU Directives met
Regulations on food safety, waste, depletion of the ozone layer, eco design and machinery
New production hall
Production machinery for 4 new peoducts
3 new packaging lines
Energy Savings and GHG reduction
