Rise in Bulgaria’s production of fruits and vegetables
Bulgaria’s production of plums, cherries and nuts has reached new heights in Bulgaria, much of which is exported, according to experts at the InteliFresh forum. Bulgarian farmers work in cooperation with Dutch partners, who assist with production, trade, transfer of knowledge and technology. The potential of Bulgarian agriculture was highlighted at the second edition of InteliFresh on 22 February in Plovdiv that brought together Bulgarian vegetable and fruit growers, large supermarkets, processors, local retailers and foreign dealers, as well as suppliers of equipment and technologies of the chain “from the garden to the shop”. The forum covered global trends in the vegetable and fruit markets, export opportunities for the Romanian market, international quality certification and funding new vegetable and fruit programmes, as well as new technologies for plant protection, processing and storage.
