Best organic food production or processing concept will win one million dinar first prize
NLB Komercijalna Banka’s Organic competition, open until 2 May 2023, seeks to award prizes totalling two-and-a-half million dinars to the freshest ideas for how to produce, process, and sell organic food and other products. A total of 646 projects have to date applied to the competition in previous years, with cash prizes going to 42 fresh ideas with the greatest potential to contribute to a healthier, more sustainable future for current and succeeding generations.
In addition to the first prize, NBL Komercijalna Banka will also give out three special awards to foster greater involvement of young people and women in sustainable production and promote the sale of Serbian organic products. This year, the bank will award two 500,000 dinar prizes, one for the best organic production project proposed by women, and one for the winning entry in the under-40s category. The same prize will go to the winning shop or catering establishment offering at least one certified Serbian organic product.
Apart from these special categories, the competition is open to all registered farmers who are either certified organic producers or currently undergoing certification, including producers with group certification.
This competition is part of NLB Komercijalna Banka’s strategic objective and mission to foster sustainable business. The bank has to date switched to fully renewable electricity, introduced paperless procurement, and supported the Green Agenda by helping market sustainable products.
