Exports of wheat from Bulgaria will not lead to shortages

There is enough wheat in Bulgaria to meet the needs of the population for the next two years. Before the BNT, representatives of the National Association of Grain Producers demanded clear rules from the government to ensure the country's food security. 

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, the price of wheat on world markets has risen many times over, so producers have called for a market mechanism to be put in place to prevent losses for both the state and producers. 
Until the ban on wheat exports, Bulgaria traditionally supplied countries in the European Union, China and Taiwan. However, grain producers are adamant that exports to other countries cannot lead to a shortage of wheat in Bulgaria.
