Who We Are?
KC Agro, established in 2014, is an agricultural company that owns and operates 3 agricultural farms totalling 10,000 hectares in Romania. The company invests in farming operations and agricultural land in Romania, where it can create value by expanding and optimising operations.
Current land price levels in Romania are significantly lower than other EU peers indicating a substantial upside potential. Furthermore, Romania's climate and soil quality let us produce various crops in a healthy way.
We produce conventional agricultural products such as cereals and oilseeds. In addition, we are constantly expanding our product portfolio with more value-added products such as sugarbeet, hemp and blueberries.
