Self-sufficiency rates in crop supply balance sheets still lower than in animal balance sheets
The supply balance sheets indicated especially low self-sufficiency rates in 2020 in the case of total fruits (36%), vegetables (48%), potato (60%) and honey (67%). As regards animal balance sheets, the self-sufficiency rates were higher for meat (84%) and for eggs (95%).
Self-sufficiency rate in cereals in Slovenia in 2020 at 89%
In the observed year, domestic production of cereals reached almost 750,000 tons and it was 17% higher than in the previous year. Domestic consumption of cereals decreased by 2% and reached almost 840,000 tons. Due to the more extensive production and lower consumption, the self-sufficiency rate in cereals in 2020 increased compared to the previous year and reached 89%.
Total fruits production was 113,000 tons in 2020, and due to the more favourable weather conditions it was about a third higher than in the previous year. Domestic consumption of fruits also increased in comparison with the previous year and reached around 310,000 tons in 2020, thus pushing the self-sufficiency rate higher, i.e. to 36%. The self-sufficiency rate in fresh fruits was also somewhat higher, reaching 49%.
Per capita consumption of fruits, vegetables, potato and honey higher, of cereals, meat and eggs lower
According to provisional data for 2020, annual comparisons indicate that per capita consumption increased slightly: for fruits by 1%, for vegetables by almost 2%, for potato by 3% and for honey by 30% (yet only very low quantities were consumed). In the case of other groups of agricultural products, per capita consumption in Slovenia decreased slightly: for meat by 3%, for cereals by 4% and for eggs by 11%.
