The month of August was very busy for our team. Besides our regular work, that’s when we built our workshop in Jagodina from scratch and there we will install our machines and create our first product.
After getting the required permits from the Serbian Ministry of Agriculture, team Bifrost has managed to plant our very first hemp crops.
Located near Jagodina, we expect nothing but best quality hemp from our one acre field, that will be used for testing and optimizing our machines for bioplastics production. And since we are mentioning the machines.. more great things are to follow. Stay tuned!
