SWISSLION Food Industry Trebinje was established in mid-2009 as a part of the SWISSLION system, food industry leader in SEE Region. Bosnia and Herzegovina thus obtained a strong business, implementing SL TECHNOLOGY – as a symbol of top quality natural and healthy food of control origin and modern development of production process.
Thanks to a good business strategy, clear vision, huge energy of the President of the System Mister, Rodoljub Drašković, the creator of the idea of making a multinational business system, we managed in a relatively brief period to commence some of the most up to date confectionery facilities and launch production of the recognisable brands, such as Eurocrem, Euroblok, Čoko bananica, Orange biscuit, Rahatluk, etc.
Trebinje Food Industry as a part of the SWISSLION business policy has demonstrated the philosophy of constant investments into development and production as a necessity, a thing required for surviving in both national and international markets.
Therefore, continuing the tradition of permanent development and following global trends, SWISSLION in 2014 invested in the most up to date equipment, extension of production capacities and, in accordance with needs, launched new technological processes, improving competitiveness and adapting to the requirements of customers.
The total value of investments into equipment and facilities in 2014 amounted to BAM 20,082,844.00, of which BAM 18,800,000.00 was invested in the most up to date processing equipment for confectionery industry.

During 2014 we produced 20,000,000.00 kg of products in kind, 84% more compared to 2013. The implementation of the new technology is reflected, also in a considerable increase in sales and sales revenues, which increased by 45% compared to 2013.
