Slovenia Food & Drink Report

With growth of the Slovenian economy expected to remain in negative territory (or minimally positive at best) throughout 2014, we do not envisage a major positive shift in private spending.

Slovenia's leading food retailer Mercator, which has a strong presence in the Balkans, saw its share price decline by nearly 70% between late 2011 and late 2013. This was a company with seemingly exciting prospects in the region, as it expanded beyond its core domestic base into markets such as Croatia and Serbia. Organised retail here was still fairly underdeveloped, and the opportunities on offer, while exciting for a regional retailer like Mercator, were not quite on a large enough scale to attract the likes of UK-based Tesco and France-based Carrefour.
