Serbia continues its good economic performance contributed... More info
Meat and meat products producers in Serbia are facing a crisis caused by severe restrictions on exports to regional, European and world markets due to the occurrence of African swine fever in its territory, which has reduced their revenues significantly, with some companies up to 40 %. Due to the African swine fever, meat products not treated at temperatures above 80 degrees Celsius have been banned since August this year, but the industry has been most affected by the export ban to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Northern Macedonia and Montenegro, where exports have traditionally been the highest. Slightly over a year ago, producers of meat and meat products are not exporting to the territory of Kosovo because of the 100 % levy imposed by the authorities in Priština. In addition to these restrictions on the placement of goods onto foreign markets, the position of national producers of meat products is also hampered by the large imports of meat products from the European Union.
