Subject to testing will be chocolate products, sodas, meat and dairy products, baby foods of producers from Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands and France. Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Croatia have already confirmed differences in the quality of foods sold on their markets compared to the same brands sold in West Europe.
