The crisis also affected Pivka's fish-processing subsidiary Delamaris, however, the company managed to generate EUR 427,847 in net profit in 2010 in spite of lower sales revenues.
Pivka perutninarstvo said in the press release that the main reason for Delamaris's troubles were financial problems of its business partners in Croatia.
