Serbia Ranks Second in Europe in Frozen Fruit Production

As Makroekonomija portal reports, Serbia would bring into the EU more than 2% of agro-food processing industry output capacity. This area is one of the areas in which Serbia is more developed than some member states of the EU.

Eurostat runs a database on production, trade, quantities and values of industrial production per countries. has analyzed 428 out of 4.476 food products and specifies how much certain sectors would increase the overall EU production if Serbia would be a full member state.

Frozen fruit production is a part of the food processing industry not agricultural production hence Serbia ranking second in this area, after Poland. According to Eurostat, when produced quantities are compared, Serbia produces 34.2% of all frozen fruit in the EU. The only other important player in this type of production is Italy.

Tobacco industry ranks also high but not as high since tobacco industry is larger in Poland, Germany and Romania. However the truth of the matter is that there is data missing for France (who hasn't reported production numbers since 2009) and a few other potentially major producers.

Serbian sunflower oil production ranks fourth in the EU, after Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania.
