Bulgaria plans to create a register of fruit and vegetable traders and will track importers’ goods from the border to the counter. The system will also check whether the importer has stock, and whether the imports are sold at a fair or low price. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Agriculture Chavdar Marinov.
The database will be linked to the National Revenue Agency, the Customs Agency and the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency.
As a result of these measures, Marinov predicts that only regulated imports will remain on the market.
