Decline in production, and growth in imports of tomatoes. So much about the success of our tourism

first_imgPhoto: Pixabay.com Smart enough. About 60 percent of the total import of tomatoes to Croatia comes from Italy and the Netherlands, and we also import more than a ton from Spain, Germany and Poland. On the other hand, about two-thirds of total tomato exports end up in Slovenia and Germany. By the way, the import of fruits and vegetables is growing from year to year, and last year we imported 25 thousand tons more than in 2017. So much about the success of our tourism. Tomato production in Croatia fell in 2018 by almost 25 percent compared to the year before. Last year we produced 30950 tons, while we ended 2017 with 41223 tons of tomatoes produced.center_img On the other hand, say one Turkey, expects 50 million tourists this year, and strong Turkish agriculture products meet almost all the needs of both tourism and the population. Well, that is tourism, and not to encourage imports through tourism, as is the case in Croatia. In accordance with lower production, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce points out, exports also decreased, by about 30 percent. We exported 5287 tons last year, compared to 7505 tons in 2017. Imports, on the other hand, increased by five percent from 12813 tons in 2017 to 13369 tons in 2019. A kilogram of imported tomatoes last year cost an average of 0,99 euros, while for an export kilogram we received an average of five euro cents less.last_img read more
