Bulgarian Ministry of Agriculture developing new food requirements
The goal is to avoid the double standard. The draft provisions provide for the exact meat content of sausages to be described.
Wieners, for example, must have at least 50% meat. Similar will be the requirements for kielabasi and other types of sausages. In minced meat, the meat content should be at least 70-80%.
Dairy products will need to be prepared from at least 5 liters of milk. It has not yet been decided whether there will be requirements for non-alcoholic beverages, chocolates and other types of food.
The new rules are expected to enter into force next year. ■
