Export of fruit and vegetables breaks records.

Processed fruit and vegetables of 46,500 tons were exported last year, which is a 3.1 percent increase from 2013.

The export of ajvar, pepper dips, compotes, fruit preserves and other canned foods is breaking records. In addition, the cost of these exports which amounted to a record 51.2 million euros in 2014 has been increased by 3 percent.

Most of these products are sold to the European market where 27,600 tons of processed fruit and vegetables of 28 million euros were exported last year, which is a 59.5 percent of the total value of canned food exports. Sixteen percent was exported to Serbia, 6 percent to Bosnia and Herzegovina and 5.5 percent to Kosovo.
