Local community

We support a large number of projects and local initiatives in Zadar and Istria. In accordance with our strategic priorities, as a socially responsible company we are actively involved in numerous projects and activities that positively affect the progress of our local community.

Good long-term cooperation with the local community is visible in many joint activities and projects. We put special focus on collaboration with schools and universities, supporting education, through internship opportunities, site visits as well as participating in the publication of scientific papers, showing Cromaris synergy with the Academia.

Cromaris actively supports local communities (donations, sponsorship, various fundings) where our farms and facilities operate.

Long-term successful cooperation with local community is visible through many projects:

The Adris Foundation

By the establishment of its Foundation in 2007, Adris grupa, one of the leading Croatian companies, wanted to make a breakthrough in social responsibility. It also wished to offer direct assistance to the development and progress of Croatian society, through the promotion of social responsibility among Croatian companies and the general public.

This action set new standards, which will have to be followed by other Croatian companies if they wish to be perceived as socially responsible. Through the systematic directing of funds from operations to philanthropy, Adris grupa strongly affirmed its corporate social responsibility and the concept of active participation of large and successful companies in the creation of advanced social environment for all citizens.Thanks to the support of the Adris Foundation, hundreds of projects, individuals, associations and institutions achieved their goals, leaving a deep imprint in the fields of science, culture, preservation of natural heritage, creativity, youth work, care for persons with disabilities, humanitarian actions, etc. One of the important projects for our local community funded through Adris Foundation is:

Renovation of the promenade along the city walls in the historic center of Nin – Obala Petra Krešimira IV.

City of Nin, Project manager: Jozo Mustać

The mentioned project of renovation of the promenade includes the area along the mantle of the city walls, from the upper stone bridge and the upper city gate to the lower Nin bridge and Bardeline, thus connecting the two entrances to the historic center of Nin.
