Slovakia: Retail Foods

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   LO2021-0001

The food retail sector in Slovakia is consolidated, price sensitive, and competitive. The Slovak market is experiencing a boom in internet shopping for all food categories. While the Slovak government recently implemented new laws to protect local producers and grocery retailers, there are still good niche opportunities for U.S. high-quality products, such as distilled spirits, frozen fish, dried fruit and nuts, and food preparations.
