The damage caused by COVID-19 is putting further pressure on Croatia’s slaughterhouse and meat processing industry, which was already struggling in the wake of cheap imports, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce said

According to local media, Croatian producers have been in a difficult situation since the country joined the European Union in 2013, and consequently, the market was opened up to large European companies.

Stakeholders have appealed to the government to shore up the industry through the ongoing unprecedented crisis, which caused the situation to deteriorate further.
