Jazi 1 Sh-p.k. is the second largest egg producer in Kosovo, a wholesaler of dairy, eggs and edible fats/oil products. The company also produces and sells animal feeds.
Established in 2005, the company initially focused on egg production and later expanded its business to animal feeds, thereby gaining a significant competitive advantage over other egg producers, which have to purchase the animal feed. Of course, today animal feed is also sold to other producers.
The company decided to improve several aspects of its business:
With the help of the Kosovo SME Competitiveness Support Programme, the company invested in new laying and automated egg collection facility for 27,300 hens, including modern ventilation, lighting and cooling systems, new egg packaging machinery, processing 36,000 eggs per hour and in the upgrade of the existing hen house to modern standards and to accommodate the requirements of the new machinery installed.
Jazi received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and a 15% cash-back grant after the successful project verification, funded by the European Union.
With the investment, the company now meets a wide variety of European standards, including:
EU Directives met
Regulations on protection of laying hens, egg packaging, water pollution, energy efficiency and eco design.
Hen-house upgrade, modern laying and egg collection machinery, new egg packaging machinery
Energy Savings and GHG reduction
