Croatia’s First Month in EU Brings 524% More Imported Eggs

CroatiaPromises of cheaper food prices on supermarkets shelves in Croatia after the country became the European Union’s 28th member state in July, have not eventuated. The only thing that has eventuated, as daily Vecernji list reports, is a record increase on imports…

In the month of July alone, the first month of Croatia’s EU membership, 3 million eggs were imported into the country, put in percentage terms – 524% more than the same month a year prior. Along with eggs, meat was another product which saw massive import increases – pork imports went up 4 times (300%), and beef around 400%. Compared to July 2012, 175% more fresh milk was imported into Croatia, and 127% more butter.

Although statistics are not available for the last two months, experts say that the trend has continued and will be confirmed once statistics are released and local producers are worried.

“We are still producing Croatian eggs, till when only god knows,” said Jakov Ćorić from one of Croatia’s largest egg producers Gala.
