Kosovo has experienced a surge in local consumption of agricultural commodities in recent times as public spending power, especially in urban regions, has increased. The need for plant-based foods has increased more than that for any other product group during the previous ten years, and it is predicted to keep rising. 

The Kosovo Industrial and Business Support Authority believes that the market for fruits and veggies in the country would present considerable potential for growth and revenue.
