Submitted on Sunday, 14 September 2008No Comment

The market share of the Bulgarian attar of roses is between 40 and 50% of the global production, but its quality is by far considered the best, the Bulgarian Agriculture and Food Ministry said. In 2007 the land planted with oil-yielding roses accounted for more than 3 000 ha, of which 1200 kg attar of roses were manufactured. This trade will enjoy financial aid under the Rural Development Programme of the European Union.
