Company Zlatiborac stemmed from the cultivating of a centuries-long tradition of drying and smoking meat, which began in 1885, in the extraordinary ambient of the village Mačkat on Zlatibor. In a place where the winds from the Mediterranean, Alps and Carpathian Mountains meet, on the smoke of beech wood, cured delicatessen with a recognizable aroma are made. Six generations of the Stojanović family have been nurturing the recipes for preparing these cured meat delicatessen for over 130 years. Milomir Stojanović boldly led his family and started the company in 1992.
Since its founding, to this day, Zlatiborac has become a leading company in the Serbian market in the category of durable cured meat products thanks to dedicated work and high quality of products. In addition to exporting products onto the markets of the countries from the region – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia, Zlatiborac has very successfully positioned itself in the markets of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan. Supreme quality of products is reflected in the fact that we recently started exporting to EU countries. Since its founding, the Company Zlatiborac has continuously been investing into optimization and standardization of its production process. These investments led to the obtaining of the most significant certificates which testify of quality and safety of our production process. This company has HACCP, EAC, IFS and HALAL certificates.
Apart from that, numerous awards which the company has received up to now are also proof of quality. German Agricultural Society, one of the most respectable institutions for quality and taste assessment of food products, has rewarded the company Zlatiborac for five years in a row for the quality of products in the annual competitions “Ham and Sausage Quality.” More than 30,000 manufacturers from the entire world take part in this competition. Products with the Zlatiborac seal have won over 40 medals for top quality products. Consumers have also recognized that Zlatiborac is a sovereign ruler in its category on the domestic market. For five years in a row, consumers rewarded these products with the gold medal “My choice” as their favourite in the category “Meat and Meat Products” in the Serbian market. Few companies can take pride in balancing price and quality. Zlatiborac can. This was confirmed by the recently consumer-awarded prize “Best Buy Award” 2015/2016 for the best ratio of price and quality in the category of durable salamis. There are over 100 gold medals for quality which have been awarded by the Novi Sad Fair, Grand Prix Business Partner 2010 and 2013, and the gold medal for product quality “World Food Ukraine” 2013.
It is important to note that the company Zlatiborac takes care of the community on daily basis, nurturing and emphasizing the importance of socially responsible business. The contribution to society is seen from the numerous donations, sponsoring and humanitarian activities. From the start of this year alone, Company Zlatiborac realized over 100 donations, and from November 2017, these cured meat products are the official food of the Olympic Team of Serbia.
