A Bulgarian start-up company producing sugar, gluten, soy and fat-free protein sweets is growing fast, incorporating ambitious plans and out-of-the-box ideas in its development.

After being valued at BGN 1 million (EUR 511,637) by a venture investment fund, the company managed to raise BGN 100,000 to improve and expand the distribution of its products in outlets across the country.

So far, their candies are available in over 200 outlets in Bulgaria. The company is also planning to break into markets abroad. Links with outlets in Romania, Greece, Poland, Italy and Spain are being built.
