Abstract: The paper analyzes Croatia’s foreign trade of agri-food products before and after EU membership. In the period from 2010 to 2016 Croatia recorded foreign trade deficit of agri-food products. Prior to joining the EU, the most important market in foreign trade was CEFTA, and after the entry it was the EU market. Prior to Croatia’s accession to the EU, the most important trade partners, in terms of trade value, were markets of CEFTA parties, and after Croatia’s accession, the EU market. Before and after accession to the EU, Croatia’s most important trade partners were Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany and Italy, although the importance of Bosnia and Herzegovina was reduced by Croatia's accession to the EU. In terms of trade value, the most important agri-food products in foreign trade are fresh pork, sugar, fish, chocolate and products containing cocoa, as well as bakery and confectionery products.
