Sofia. “There are few imported cozonacs (Easter bread) on the Bulgarian market; they are packaged and cannot be mistaken,” said Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture and Food Desislava Taneva, speaking for Nova TV on Saturday.
The minister noted every Bulgarian consumer should trust his or her own choice, vision, and understanding of the food he or she wanted to consume.
According to Taneva, bread and bakery products are exclusively produced in Bulgaria.
Asked whether egg dyes were dangerous, the government member replied the E number substances in them were safe.
In Desislava Taneva’s words, if there are imported bakery products, they can be purchased in specialised stores.
The foods were mostly confiscated as they lacked the required documents about their origin and quality, the minister explained.
As regards the lumpy skin disease, the minister specified it had been diagnosed in herds of cows in Bulgaria on April 14-15.
