INTERNATIONAL EXPERT SYMPOSIUM THE CROATIAN BAKER
We held the first symposium 18 years ago. Throughout this period, this project gathered Croatian bakers, millers and confectioners. It has served as a connection between the profession and its practice and a place where novelties in the field were presented.
In those 18 symposiums, almost 3,000 participants and around 100 companies from Croatia, Europe and the world took part. Around a hundred programs and novelties were presented, as well as many baking and confectionery products. Many met and made contact at these events and they successfully cooperate today. The symposium consists of 4 parts: a) expert lectures b) sampling of new baking and confectionery products and c) topics regarding the implementation of positive regulations in the branch, be it inspection control or adhering to various laws and regulations d) presentation traditional bakery and pastry product from region
The Ministry of Agriculture, Fishery and Rural Development is the high patron of the event every year.

“CONPASTA” – INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF PASTA EXPERTS
International Congress of Pasta Experts, organized by Robinson. This event will undoubtedly have great significance for the development of regional pasta production in Central and Southeast Europe. Producers from these areas are increasingly conquering the international markets and announcing new, autochthonous brands in pasta production. Croatia is undoubtedly a country that has great potential in this respect. It is thus not surprising that the organizer chose it to host this event. The organizer wishes to promote the latest accomplishments in pasta production at the congress, as well as to seek answers how to promote pastas that are not that well-known or have already been forgotten in gastronomy and normal diet.
