We’re paying for food more than British, similar as Slovenians
Croatian GDP per capita is at 63% of EU average
Eurostat has published its latest comparison of economic development, purchasing power and prices of EU member states for the year 2018, showing that in 10 years Croatia has not made any progress concerning the country’s development in relation to EU average, as Croatia’s GDP per capita is at 63% of EU average. However, as far as prices are concerned, it is very close to the EU average, so food in Croatia costs more than in the UK and is at a similar level to Slovenia or Spain. The main reasons for such prices are high retail mark-ups, tourist spending, lack of competition and a government that just shrugs its shoulders at these trends.
