Croatia's Ministry of Agriculture has filed a written objection against the proposed protection of the 'Kranjska klobasa', a Slovenia sausage which derives from the region of Kranjska in Slovenia, which the Republic of Slovenia submitted to the European Commission, reports website net.hr.
Slovenia applied to the EU to get protection of the product called "Kranjska klobasa" claiming the geographical origins of the product.
In accordance with EU rules, any country can object to product protection proposals within 6 months from the publication of information of the submitted application.
The Ministry said in a statement that the written objection is to protect Croatian producers and exporters, who are estimated to produce and export in excess of 10 million Euros annually worth of the 'Kranjska' sausages.
"The Croatian Chamber of Commerce and Croatian producers of Kranjska sausages have compiled all relevant historical evidence since 2010 to back up the objection and the Ministry of Agriculture will further strengthen the Croatian case," said the statement.
