Ujë Rugove

The Ujë Rugove Company was established in late 2006. Initially Rugove only offered bottled water in plastic bottles of 0.5l and 1.5l. After hefty investments Rugove currently has a broad product line including bottled water in glass bottles of 0.75l and 0.25l, big 6l plastic bottles, 10l plastic barrels and a selection of cheeses for the cheese market. Today, the Rugove company is one of the rare local producers offering entirely natural products, produced in Kosovo with international certifications ensuring a high quality of products and business management. Currently Ujë Rugove has 95 employees.
