Additional Information

Zagreb Brewery on September 11 2015 opened its new logistics, distribution and commercial centre in an investment worth HRK 38 million (€ 5.1 million). 80-100 new jobs will be created. The CEO of the Zagreb Brewery pointed out that this project is part of ongoing business development.  Capital investment in the Zagreb brewery in the last ten years has amounted to more than HRK 780 million. The centre has been built in just eight months contradicting the impression that it is difficult to invest in Croatia. This example confirms that there are no obstacles to foreign investment in Croatia. Since June 2012, Zagrebačka pivovara (Zagreb Brewery) has been a part of the Molson Coors group.
