Croatian Potatoes And Meat Not Up To McDonald’s Standards

Only 20% of suppliers to McDonald’s restaurants in Croatia are from Croatia, despite its advertising claiming the contrary.

McDonald’s franchise holder in Croatia Globalna hrana say that Croatians would love it if all McDonald’s suppliers were Croatian producers, but that it is impossible as Croatian produce does not meet the required standards.

“Meat and buns we get from Austria, but the fresh vegetables for the sandwiches and salads we get from Croatian suppliers,” said Pavel Pavlicek from Globalna hrana.

Croatian potatoes from the Lika region are considered too small to make french fries from, whilst the meat is also ‘imported’ as Croatia lack processing facilities. Pavlicek says that more McDonald’s restaurants will pop up in Croatia as it enters the EU.
