Value of food donated to charities in Croatia drops

By  Mar 22, 2019

In 2018 a total of 9.9 million Kunas worth of food was donated to Croatian charities, which was down almost a million Kuna when compared with 2017.

The Croatian Tax Office collected data on the amount of food donated to Croatian charities as part of an action which will be launched in Brussels to mark the most generous companies. However, the data collected shows that donations have dropped significantly and even more worrying is that around 380,000 tonnes of food is thrown away every day, the vast majority by households.

The biggest donators of food in Croatia in recent years have been the supermarket chain Konzum and the dairy producer Dukat.
