Slow growth in Croatian fresh fruits and vegetables outputThis article was originally published in Foodnews
FRESH vegetable and fruit production is extremely diverse in Croatia, according to a new report by the USDA. Local production, which covers less than two-thirds of total consumption, is increasing only slightly. Croatia is more self-sufficient in vegetable production than it is in fruit production. Imports, mainly of tropical and sub-tropical fruits, provide a significant share of total fruit consumption.
