Vegetable and fruit production is extremely diverse in Croatia

Vegetable and fruit production is extremely diverse in Croatia. However, local production covers less than 2/3 of total consumption. In 2009, Croatia produced 851,000 MT of fruit juices; 11,000 MT of canned vegetables, and 13,000 MT of vegetables preserved in vinegar. Imports of fresh and processed fruit and vegetables, excluding fruit juices, totaled $316 million in 2009. The most interesting sectors of the Croatian market to US exporters are the fresh fruit and the processed fruit and vegetables sectors. In the fresh fruit segment, Croatia mainly imports bananas, oranges, lemons, grapes, apples, peaches, pears, kiwi, watermelons, mandarins, grapefruit, pineapple, apricots and strawberries. In 2009, the United States shipped negligible amounts of fruit to Croatia but the potential, mainly for citrus, is around $40 million. In processed fruit and vegetables segment, the US exported products valued at $2.3 million to Croatia in 2009 and the potential for increased trade exists.
