The first batch of canned fish produced by the Croatian company Sardina will soon arrive in Ukrainian stores.
Sardina, based in Postira, on the north coast of the island of Brač, signed a contract with the Ukrainian commercial network for the sale of 40,000 cans of fish, Total Croatia News reported.
According to the company's sales director, Davor Gabela, Sardina believes that its products have great chances of success in the vast Ukrainian market.
"Ukraine will become the 27th country to which we export. About this contract, we agreed for nine months," said Gabela.
