Our story...

... begins in 1992.


In a small village fromTransylvania, from the Mihai Viteazu commune in Cluj County, a family of worthy and hardworking people (our dearest parents), set out to offer those around them what at that time was a joy in its purest form: tasty dishes for dinners at home, with loved ones.

At the beginning of the 90s, when Romania was taking the first steps towards a free economy, here in the heart of Transylvania, the CIA - ABOLIV deli meats factory wasborn. Starting as a small factory that used old-fashioned techniques, with a total of 20 employees and a distribution of products within a small area, our company has now become a major player on the Romanian market, with over 400 employees, and a factory covering five hectares.

During our journey, there were two moments of major importance, two turning points, namely the moment when we had the opportunity to access European funds to build the new factory and to implement the highest standards in the field,and the moment we entered modern market,and we started to produce for big chain stores.

But what is most important from our point of view is that the modern technologies implemented in the CIA ABOLIV factory make our products safe products, processed in conditions of maximum hygiene and safety, without traces of soy and gluten, products that are analyzed permanently in our laboratories equipped with the latest equipment – so that only the best products arrive at your table.

We will certainly not stop here, and we will pass on the legacy, motivated to continue to grow and offer you, ourcustomers, what is best.

We want to share with you the story of CIA – ABOLIV,

to show you the most important moments in our evolution:

  • 1992

    The CIA ABOLIV company comes to life. The 500 kg of deli meats, produced daily by the fresh factory, were sold in a small area, near Turda - Câmpia Turzii. Two stores were opened. At that time, the production section was equipped with Romanian equipment (choppers, cutter, mixer), while using traditional boiling andsmoking techniques. The CIA-ABOLIV family had 20 members.
  • 1996/1997

    Our products were very popular, increasing the demand. Thus, we decided to build a new factory, of around 1000m². Modern equipment has been purchased from major global manufacturers in the field. From this point, due to the modernization on the technological flow, the production gradually registered a dynamic of constant growth, but also a diversification of the assortments.
  • 2004

    This was a very important year in our journey, because it was the moment when we entered the modern market and we started to collaborate with the big retailers, to produce deli meats for the big stores. This determined us to take a step on generating a big development and expansion.
  • 2005

    Romania was in the period of pre-accession to the European Union, and the support programs motivated us and offered us the possibility to access funds for the construction of a new modern factory, in accordance with the requirements and norms of the EU. Thus, with the help of the SAPARD program, we started to build today's CIA-ABOLIV factory, which was to have a production capacity of 20 tons per day.
  • 2006

    Work on the new meat factory has been completed. CIA-ABOLIV thus becameone of the first deli meats factories in Romania with a technological flow in accordance with European norms. The production capacity exceeded 20 tons per day, and we managed to offer new jobs, due to the newly made investments. The technological line has been improved, we have purchased new state-of-the-artequipment in the meat industry, which considerably improved the quality of the products, by strictly monitoring the traceability in the production process. The total investment was about 4.5 million euros.
  • 2007

    We implemented HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and ISO 9001-2000 systems. Besides,this year we obtained the sanitary veterinary authorization for intra-community exchanges.
  • 2009

    YEAR OF DEVELOPMENT. By 2009 we managed to grow considerably,and we ended up producing about 40 tons of deli meats daily. Our factory has reached a number of 250 employees. Out of our desire for continuous improvement, this year we implemented the ISO 22000 - 2005 Food Safety Management System.This improvement had a significant impact on the company's development. Our credibility has increased and the fact that we have implemented the highest standards in the field has made us become important players in the market. The quality and safety of our products now became difficult to match.
  • 2011

    We continued the modernization process, and in the first part of 2011 a modern slaughter house unit was put into use, which met the highest requirements imposed by European legislation. We have always put a special emphasis on the raw material, choosing our suppliers very carefully, and this investment has helped ensure a larger quantity of fresh meat for stores and limited our need to import. The costs amounted to about 1 millioneuros.
  • 2013

    We have built and inaugurated a logistics warehouse for the storage of finished products, where state-of-the-art techniques were used for handling, sorting and packaging products. The ware house had a capacity of 180 tons. The use of WMS (Warehouse Management Systems) is an asset, allowing us to control the movement of products in warehouses through a computer system. The most important benefits of using this system are: inventory optimization, organization of storage space, rapid inventory, picking activities, trace ability of products from reception to exit from the warehouse.
  • 2014

    We have built a freezer warehouse with a capacity of 400 tons, which held and assured we had the necessary raw material for a reasonable period of time. We inaugurated a modern presentation store located in the Central Square of Turda.
  • 2015

    We have inaugurated a special spice warehouse, which ensured we had the necessary spices for a reasonable period of time. Also this year we implemented the Standard for Food Quality and Safety Assurance "INTERNATIONAL FOOD STANDARDS" (IFS), obtaining the "HigherLevel"score. In 2015, 2 modern presentation stores were inaugurated in Câmpia Turzii and in Turda,near Materna.
  • 2016

    We have built and inaugurated a packaging / thermoforming warehouse, where everything is automated, with state-of-the-artmachines, which ensure packaging in conditions of maximum hygiene and safety. Another modern presentation store was inaugurated in Mihai Viteazu commune.
  • 2019

    A new modern presentation store was opened in Floresti.
  • 2020

    We have built a freezer warehouse with a capacity of 580 tons, which ensured the necessary raw material for a reasonable period of time. A hall for the maturation of raw-dried products was also built, at the highest standards.
