The Zeleninárska association of producers was founded in 2004 and its main purpose was to unite the producers of vegetables, thus creating the marketable capacities that would meet the needs of the growing segment of multiple stores in the region.

The purpose of the association is to increase the presence of producers in the vegetable market.

Since the early 20th century, potato production has been a tradition in the region around the village of Kráľová pri Senci, the home of the core of our association’s members. Therefore, it was potatoes that the members started producing and selling together in the beginning. In 2008, substantial funds were invested in the post-gathering treatment and packaging of potatoes in a joint plant in the village of Kostolná pri Dunaji. In addition to potatoes, the association has since become a major producer of onion, cabbage, garlic, and parsley.

Location

Our producers are concentrated in the area of upper Žitný ostrov and the southern part of the region of Považie, in the western part of Slovakia. This area is bordered by the city of Bratislava and the towns of Trnava, Galanta and Dunajská Streda.

This area is characterized by a dry, warm continental climate. From the west, it is sheltered by Little Carpathian Mountains. In this area, the River Danube meets with the River Váh and other minor tributaries. In the 1960s, artificial canals, water bodies and extensive irrigation systems were built that help to draw the irrigation water from these surface water sources. These systems create a unique combination of warm weather and irrigation water with a wide variety of soil types ranging from light sandy to heavier soils. This allows the cultivation of a large variety of high-quality vegetables in this area with a stable yield.

The Zeleninárska association of producers (co-op) supports its growers and leads them to the optimal use of their production potential. The intention is to develop the local community of producers to make sure that soon, 100% of the goods intended for the customers come from domestic production. Similarly, our goal is to expand the range of vegetables produced to fully develop the potential of this location.
