Abstract

Food industry is one of the branches that have the most potential in the Republic of Serbia. Small and medium companies (SMEs) in food industry can improve its competitive ability on the basis of clustering - entrepreneurs get what they had previously lacked: new knowledge, new technology, better access to credit lines, easier market performance, and completion of the production cycle, from primary producers to sell. Creating a cluster corresponds to primary producers who want to gain confidence in manufacturing and its placement. By combining the final clusters or provide the raw material whose quality can be affected.
