Croatian greengrocers complain of drop in sales due to E.coli panic

Croatian Times

Croatian vegetable vendors have noticed a 50 per cent drop in sales since the outbreak of E.coli bacteria in Germany, daily TPortal writes.

The president of the Association of Croatian Vegetable Greengrocers says that out of fear of contamination, consumers have stopped buying even locally-produced vegetables.

"When people are not buying, retailers of course are not buying from us, so we have come to a situation where, totally without a reason, we are throwing vegetables in the trash. If these hysterics continue, we will be pushed to the edge," says Zagorec.

He adds that Croatian vegetables are strictly controlled, more rigorously than in many other foreign countries.

After many European countries banned or limited imports of the vegetables in question from Germany and Spain, Croatia is not currently considering that option.
