First Organic Tahini Factory in Bulgaria

On May 23rd, the first organic tahini factory in Bulgaria - BIOTERRA – IVAYLOVGRAD Ltd. - was officially opened in the village of Kondovo, Municipality Ivaylovgrad. Its opening becomes possible thanks to the expert and financial support by the Bulgarian-Dutch project New Thracian Gold (NTG) for the sustainable development of the Eastern Rhodopes.

In 2010, a group of fellow agricultural producers from Ivaylovgrad region received knowledge and advice from the NTG project on organic growing of cereals and sesame. In 2012, NTG provided machines for improving yields, for weeding and a combiner for improving quality. As a result, the cooperators registered the ‘Bioterra-Ivaylovgrad’ Ltd. aimed at cooperation and adding value to primary produce – the NTG project helped them again by providing machines for processing of sesame to a tahini paste. The cooperative ‘Bioterra-Ivaylovgrad’ Ltd. is established to demonstrate a model for development of the organic farming and processing in a rural area of Bulgaria.
