At the Forum of Zagreb Caterers held today (Tuesday, November 6) at the Esplanade Hotel, the Zagreb Association of Caterers presented a number of requests to the city of Zagreb and the state, in order to relieve and facilitate the functioning of the hospitality industry.They especially referred to the lack of manpower, a problem due to which some caterers are forced to close their catering facilities. Thus, the Association believes that it is necessary to adapt the curriculum to the needs of the labor market and provide students with more internships (80/20 model in favor of practical classes based on the Austrian system) and significantly reduce wage contributions, which would make it easier for caterers to find adequate labor.They also believe that the demarcation between the hospitality industry and trade should be clearly established, thus eliminating unfair competition. Among other requirements to the state, there are the recognition of the costs of representation in 100% form and the reduction of VAT from 25 to 13% on food in catering. “In the area of the city of Zagreb in the first nine months of 2018, chefs (782) and waiters (1493) were most in demand. The fact that only 272 (35%) jobs of chefs and 796 (53%) jobs of waiters have been filled speaks in favor of the growing problem of lack of staff. If some concrete steps are not taken soon in solving the problem of the labor force, an increasing number of catering facilities will be closed, which will be reflected in the tourist offer of the city of Zagreb, but also of the whole of Croatia. ” said Franz Letica, president of the Zagreb Association of Caterers. By the way, the Association of Caterers Zagreb is very active and clearly articulates its problems and challenges, and as announced, and so it was last year, after the Forum, they clearly articulated the conclusions from the same. This is extremely important, because just imagine how many different forums, conferences, panels there are every year kao and like everyone else they are fighting for something, and no one clearly articulates their conclusions after the event, both to the public and to the institutions. And there is the main problem, only the same story has been told for 20 years, money and resources are spent, and there is no real action or results, by which I mean market, not political changes, to move things from a dead end through argumentative dialogue.The Zagreb Association of Caterers brings together about 1.500 craftsmen and craftsmen of the City of Zagreb and solves the problems of about 4.500 legal entities of Zagreb’s caterers.,The Zagreb Association of Caterers brings together about 1.500 craftsmen and craftsmen of the City of Zagreb and solves the problems of about 4.500 legal entities of Zagreb’s caterers.
