Farmers are highly vulnerable on the market. Without supporting them, they cannot survive the current crisis. I will endure all the accusations, but what matters most for me is that farmers will survive in the end and that I do not see how they are throwing away the highest-quality Bulgarian produce. This is what Bulgaria's Minister of Agriculture Desislava Taneva said in response to the criticism by retail chains after the state authorities introduced a new emergency measure, reading that retail chains should increase the supply of Bulgarian food. 

Taneva dismissed the charges that the measure in question was an act of corruption, lobbying and violation of market principles.
