ZAGREB (Croatia), September 2 (SeeNews) – Croatian privately-owned concern Agrokor plans to add filling stations to the outlets operated by its retail division, following into the footsteps of European counterparts like British supermarket chain Sainsbury’s which has become a major player on the oil derivatives market, Croatian media reported.
The company confirmed the plans but said it has not entered into any partnerships yet, the Vecernji List (www.vecernji.hr) daily reported on Tuesday without naming its source.
It is possible that Croatian oil and gas company INA could join Agrokor’s project under some format, Vecernji added, quoting people familiar with the matter.
No further details about the project were immediately available.
Agrokor owns Croatia’s biggest retailer Konzum (www.konzum.hr) which operates a domestic network of more than 650 outlets.
Retail trade and the production and distribution of food and beverages form the core business of the Agrokor concern (www.agrokor.hr). Outside its home country it is present in Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro.
