Bulgarians will not be left without bread, the question is how much it will cost

There are few countries in Europe that produce more grain than they consume, and fortunately Bulgaria is one of them, Plamen Abrovski, chairman of the parliamentary committee on agriculture, told BNR. 

Grain shortages are possible, but it will be extremely difficult to run out of bread. The question is at what price it will be, because the value of the grain grows exponentially and is transferred to flour and bread. The state has not yet bought stocks, offering lower prices than market ones, Abrowski said, proposing that millers and cattlebreeders should get cheaper loans to buy grain.

Significant exports of Bulgarian grain to Greece are already under way, BNR correspondent in Greece Katya Peeva reported.
