Agricultural cooperative “Livač”

Agricultural cooperative “Livač” was established in 2006 by one of the founders of the Caritas diocese Banja Luka.

Cooperative is functioning as social enterprise whose goal is to create new working places and finance social project activities of the diocese through realized profit. Moreover, the cooperative is donating its products to those in need for ten years so far.

The cooperative owns a farm where they do trainings and help agricultural manufacturers besides producing milk and their well-known cheese. Additionally, the diocese is very environmentally friendly.  It owns a plant for producing biogas from stables, enabling the production of electricity. Unfortunately, current legal regulations do not allow decentralized power supply from smaller capacity to the public network so the diocese is using that electricity for their own use.
