In mid-May, the Partnership, Trade and Cooperation Agreement enters into force, according to which Serbian products will be exported to Great Britain duty-free. This opened a great perspective for the placement of finished products from raspberries and other fruits.
Due to the weather, the vegetation in the hills of the mountainous areas is late. Fruit growers are not afraid of the price this season, the uncertainty is the amount of yield, which is lower every year.
A chance for farmers! Hemp plantations as a source of large income!
– Ninety percent was given by the Ministry of Agriculture to encourage planting material, which means that they would raise something new. In order to see the economic calculation, we have to replace the planting material. It is a big problem at the level of the whole of Serbia to replace planting material, in order to reduce the areas and increase the quantity. Here for now we have quality, we have no quantity. We have a European, world market, we do not have a quantity, says Dobrivoje Radović from the Association of Raspberries of Serbia.
The agreement with Great Britain has opened a new perspective for exporters, who are already operating in that market, which is among the most demanding. In addition to the mandatory certification, fruits and fruit mixes of exclusively Serbian origin will be exempt from customs duties.

– Probably in some foreseeable period, they would look at drastically lowering the prices, for products coming from Serbia, for that amount of customs, and that customs makes up a very large part of the price. So, this agreement brought great satisfaction to the sellers, and therefore, looking a little ahead, it will be for the farmers as well, because the prices will surely be very good for both of them – says Katarina Tešić, manager of the “Krops & Partners” refrigerator from Požega.
Some exporters have also started for holographic protection of geographical origin, because it will pay off in the long run.
The state heard the cries of potato growers! This protective measure is being taken!
– When we do the protection of geographical origin, it is certain that the goods will be marketed as raw materials, and they will be marketed as a finished product. Whether it is some dried fruit, whether it is juices, marmalades, jams, it is completely irrelevant. Our goal is to get more and more goods from our country, finally processed in any sense, says Aleksandar Obradović – director of the refrigerator “Drenovac” Mirosaljci.
Demand for Serbian raspberries reigns around the world, and although the pandemic has hampered and slowed down the movement of people, food routes have not only not been interrupted, but the flow has been further accelerated.
