Short history and activity description

Created in 1996, Palcaro is a family-run enterprise specialized in the trading of live animals (bovine, ovine, porcine) for reproduction, fattening or slaughtering. The company is also specialized in the trading of Halal meat (beef, sheep and poultry) and traditional meat (beef, sheep, pork and poultry). The founders of the company have been building their business based on a 3 generation-long family experience. For more than 15 years Palcaro has been an indisputable actor for import and export of live animals with high genetic value for milk and meat.


Due to its rapid growth, the company has become recognized on different markets, on an international level and has developed a strong expertise on those different products.


The headquarters of Palcaro is located in Miercurea Ciuc, in the region of Transylvania, in Romania, and comprises different working units (Ciaracio, Nicolesti, Brasov). The farm in Ciaracio is specialized in export with a capacity for 1200 heads of bovine and 4000 heads of ovine. At Nicolesti, we collect, fatten, and prepare the designated animals for export. We can also receive animals from EU to prepare and distribute them through direct delivery, either to smaller farmers or to key accounts that require much more important quantities. Anyhow, we arrange on-time and direct deliveries to our buyers via air, sea or land. During transportation, we insure the well-being of the animals by respecting their rest periods, the sanitary conditions and the international norms & regulations.


The company perfectly knows the needs of the market and the products correspond to the expectations of the professionals and the final clients at an international level. Our goal is to supply our clients with high quality products that benefit from a modern technology and give an interesting outturn and result after the fattening cycle.
