Food sold in Serbia not fit for people

Quality of food in Serbia is highly varied - from that fit for the royal table to the products not suitable for human consumption.

The market consists of the food products that don’t meet the basic microbiological requirements. “There is a tendency for the quality to drop due to reduced purchasing power of population and the 'lost' control system,“ said Bogosavljević, President of Movement for Protection of Consumers of Belgrade.

The control system is very bad, and we aren’t taking measures to improve it. We are dealing more with political issues rather than those of healthy food and the health of population. We are politically trying to join the EU, but not to apply their laws and standards which concern food, health and safety. There is talk about it, but no real attempts to turn that talk into reality. It is not possible for us to export food because we do not have a proper food control system.

Recently there has been an affair with elevated alfatoxin levels in milk, with the consequent financial damage of 50 million €. These data show that disrespect for legal rules leads to money loss.

Does the respect for rules and dealing with human health cause less damage than disrespect? That is the question for the government.
