Slavonian delicacies are offered by the best Istrian hotels and restaurants, and tourists are looking for them more and more. Istrian hoteliers and caterers paid a two-day visit to Vukovar-Srijem County.

After a working meeting with County Prefect Božo Galić, delegations from Valamar Riviera - Poreč, Aminess Laguna Hotels - Novigrad and Hotel Malin - Malinska met with representatives of branch clusters and family farms from Vukovar-Srijem County to establish even better cooperation. The meeting at the Srijem Palace in Vukovar was joined by a delegation from the Istrian municipality of Tar-Vabriga, as well as employees of the county company Agro-klaster, led by director Zdenko Podolar.
The desire for cooperation is mutual and has already been realized in some segments, said Vukovar-Srijem County Prefect Božo Galić.
The director of the company Agro-klaster doo, which was founded by the Assembly of Vukovar-Srijem County in order to implement development projects in the field of agriculture and rural development, Zdenko Podolar, explained what exactly the Istrian hoteliers and domestic producers have agreed. " We have quality products and producers who can already produce significant quantities and are present on the market, but we do not have enough intensive production and quantities. The Istrians have expressed their readiness for dried meat products, cheeses and wines, and together we are thinking about a project for the production of free-range eggs. We have already taken some steps in that direction, it would be a very significant project and ensure long-term cooperation - Podolar pointed out.
He highlighted two issues, quantity and distribution. “If we raise production, we must provide distribution channels, have logistics centers at sea, provide cold storage, etc. We are ready as a county to enter it either through EU funds or independently, and for now the most important thing is that our producers appear in these hotels. said Podolar.
