Established in 1993, the company has grown steadily and operates cutting-edge cooling chambers and special chambers for ripening bananas to ensure that its products are always in perfect condition.
Azem Ismaili, General Manager, explains, “Atlantik offers high-quality fresh products on a daily basis and distributes them in a timely manner. Atlantik respects all national and international standards for quality of products and services and has successfully applied HACCP system standards in coordination with EN ISO 11000:2005 and EN ISO 14001:2004 system verified by TUV Austria”. Atlantik supplies large retailers in the country and throughout the EU. Around 50% of its products are sourced from local farmers.
Azem Ismaili anticipates continued strong growth for Atlantik. He says, “We expect progress in agricultural policies regarding the production of new varieties of fruits and vegetables that meet EU market demands. Macedonia also has good potential for organic food production. When our clients think of our brand, we want them to think of quality, service and price. Atlantik sold 20,000 tons of fruits and vegetables last year and with the growing demand from our faithful customers, we expect to grow even more in 2014.” Atlantik is open to win-win partnerships.
