Serbia is located at the crossroads of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Agriculture and food production in Serbia is the most important export sector, accounting for over 10 percent of the country’s GDP and around 20 percent of all exports. The Serbian market offers good opportunities for U.S. exporters of consumer-oriented agriculture products.
U.S. agro-food exports consisted mainly of almonds, snack food, prepared meals, sunflower seeds, vegetable planting seeds, dietetic foods, and concentrated proteins without dairy fats, alcoholic drinks, frozen fish and seafood and fruits. The long-term forecast for these products is that they will continue to grow. In the medium term, Serbia is also likely to increase imports of planting seeds, fish and fishery products, and poultry meat for processing, high-value consumer products, and beverages. Possibilities also exist for the expansion of U.S. exports of high value products such as tree nuts, raisins, snacks, beverage concentrates, planting seeds and seedlings, bovine semen and embryos, flavors, and fragrances.
