Josip Pavić, HGK Wine Association: Croatia is one of the world’s wine superpowers, but we still have to brand ourselves as such

first_img“We have a large disparity between imports and exports and a large gray market problem which according to some estimates makes up more than 40 percent of our total market. We need to address this through the Wine Act. In the EU, the ratio of imports and exports from third countries is 1: 0,6, which is our goal”, He said, noting that we have a big marketing job ahead of us in the branding of Graševina because a significant part of the import of white wine comes under that name, and in essence it is not about that variety. “This is another operational problem that we will have to solve because we have quality. “, concluded Pavić.  The current president of the Association Gianfranco Kozlović he said they had overcome many challenges in the past, but that the key items they fought for, such as the recognizability of the regions, were eventually included in the Act. “The promotion of Croatian wines thus gains a new dimension. It is now up to the regions to organize and do the activities they need. I am convinced that both the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry will be at your service, and it is up to all of us to continue to fight for our interests.”, Said Kozlović. NEW WINE LAW ADOPTED: FOUR WINE REGIONS ESTABLISHED At the election session of the Wine Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, he was unanimously elected the new president Josip Pavić, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Erdut Vineyards. Related news: He noted that we produce from 70 to 90 million liters a year, and that the needs of the domestic market are about 100 million liters. “This means that we import a lot and we cannot be satisfied with that because our exports cover only 53 percent of imports. We export sparkling wine and quality wines of a higher price category, so this is somewhat encouraging. “, said Kovacevic, confirming that the problem of excessive imports will be one of the main goals of the Association. center_img Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Agriculture and Tourism Dragan Kovacevic said at the opening of the session that the new Wine Act recognized the mosaic of Croatian wine regions. “Each of them has its own varietal and positional specifics, and especially the structure and capacity of vineyards. We are a trademark of the common brand Vina Croatia – vina mosaica under which our winemakers perform abroad. We believe that everything that happens in the future around the legislation must recognize these specifics and regions. And we at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce aimed to ensure that these regions, as well as key producers – export carriers, are represented in our Council. This is especially important in communication with institutions because we represent the interests of the entire Croatian wine sector”, Said Kovacevic.  Photo: Pexels.com Pavić spent his entire working life in IPK Osijek, which also included the Erdut winery, and for almost 30 years he also held high positions in the Osijek football club. Therefore, in his introductory speech, he drew an interesting parallel between football and winemaking.  “I believe that Croatia is one of the great football nations, along with Portugal, Spain, France, Italy or Germany. I also hold that we are a world wine superpower, but we have yet to market ourselves as such. We will fight for that within our brand Vina Croatia – vina mosaica “, pointed out Pavić, adding that in general we should continue to strengthen promotional activities through joint appearances in the country and in the world, because that is the most rational use of the funds we have at our disposal. He also stressed the importance of better cooperation between the wine sector and tourism and constant contact with the Ministry of Agriculture. last_img read more
