„The floods beyond one's memory that affected Serbia last year and caused it damage from which the agriculture sector is still recovering have been replaced by huge draught which will result in the decrease in agricultural production in 2015. In circumstances as such Banca Intesa has been trying to be a stable reliance to farmers and its business results as well as the success of the contest winner can prove it. I am especially glad because, as a member of Intesa Sanpaolo Group, an official global partner of the world exhibition EXPO Milan 2015, we can introduce them with up to date global technologies and sustainable practices in food production and help them in one more way to improve operations of their own households”, said Darko Popović, the member of Banca Intesa’s Executive Board and the Manager of Division for retail clients and small-sized business.

301 farmers applied to this third in a row contest Intesa Farmer and the jury selected the winners on the basis of the last year’s results that they achieved through agricultural production, inclusion of family members in the production process, storing area as property, application of modern technologies and regularity in settling financial liabilities.
