Velenje College Students Make a Professional Tour to Celjske Mesnine d. o. o. and Pivovarna Laško d. d.

On Wednesday, 12 December 2018, as part of the Basics of Gastronomy and Business Economics subjects, the first-year students of the Tourism Industry study programme from the Velenje Higher Vocational College visited the companies Celjske Mesnine d. o. o. and Pivovarna Laško d. d.

At Celjske Mesnine, the students got acquainted with the work of the workshop for the production of cooked and smoked sausages and other meat products. Celjske Mesnine has its own Z’dežele trademark, its own retail chains, and annually produces over 20,000 tons of various products. Its quality complies with the international standards HACCP, ISO and IFS. The students personally experienced the quality by trying the company’s products.

In Pivovarna Laško d. d., the participants of the tour familiarised themselves with the process of producing soft drinks and beer, and also visited the company’s museum. The quality of products produced by the company is guaranteed by the water taken from the depths of the pristine picturesque hills and the “green gold” of Slovenia – the first-class Savinje hop. The tour ended with a tasting of the company’s products.
