Slovakia's dependence on food imports behind expensive groceries, says analyst

September 13th, 2018

Food prices in Slovakia rose by 5.4 percent in the first half of 2018, representing the highest increase within the European Union, Slovak Farmers Association analyst Eva Sadovska has told TABLET.TV, adding that this was due to the fact that Slovakia's food imports are by one third higher than its exports. "As soon as something happens abroad, we respond to it in a much more sensitive way than other countries, either by increases or decreases in food prices," said Sadovska, adding that the food crisis involving the pesticide fipronil was behind more expensive eggs, while the milk crisis caused the increase in the price of butter.
