The Coordination welcomes the media’s efforts to expose the fact that some caterers continue to serve their fingers while clearly enjoying a degree of protection from state institutions. “Such a practice sheds an ugly light on the entire hospitality profession, where the majority respects the law and really tries to survive in the market despite the hitherto difficult conditions for dealing with catering. ” emphasize the Croatian Coordination of Caterers and add that the State should ensure equal market competition and severely punish those caterers who break the law in the middle of Zagreb, while not caring about the Adriatic coast, which suffers unforeseeable consequences due to fingerprinting. This law was passed for a very good reason, and the fishing of fingerlings results in the inadmissible ecological destruction of the Adriatic coast. We demand that the owners of such catering facilities be punished in accordance with the applicable law, and that inspections and other competent services thoroughly check which facilities are in question, the caterers point out in their statement. See more about the topic and initiative of the Index.hr portal HERE The Coordination of Croatian Caterers strongly condemns the practice of some caterers to secretly offer guests fingertips on their menus, despite the fact that this is strictly prohibited by law. The whole story was started by the Index.hr portal after the revelation of restaurants that serve fingers, although this is strictly forbidden by law. The last two restaurants that have fingers in their pockets, which were discovered by Index.hr, are the Zagreb restaurant Bonaca and Laganini. The most diligent workers and the most honest caterers should prosper and survive on the market, not hunters in the dark who are not afraid of anything, said Vedran Jakominić, president of the Association of Caterers of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, on behalf of the Croatian Caterers’ Coordination, adding: “We are asking the state to regulate business in the hospitality industry, the only thing we want is to give us a realistic legislative and tax framework within which we will be able to do business and survive on the market. I think that we are engaged in an extremely useful activity for Croatia, but I also do not think that we are above the law. I consider serving fingers in some restaurants shameful both as a man and as a caterer, and I demand that it be severely punished. It is unacceptable to destroy the only coast we have for the benefit of individuals. In the long run, that way we all cut the branch we are sitting on”
