AgroTransilvania Cluster

The mission of the AgroTransilvania Cluster is to promote collaboration and cooperation between business entities in the agricultural industry and encouraging competitive restructuring of the sector, as well as ensuring participation in multiple commercial projects, both national and international. In this regard, members of the AgroTransilvania Cluster decided to join forces to support the development of the agro-industrial sector, with the aim to build on the competitiveness of the association – both on the national and international markets. In this sense, this cluster is born from the need to bring together at the same table the representatives of farmers and of large retail companies to put in place a sustainable development strategy.
