Tobacco purchase campaign has already begun. It became clear from the meeting of the Minister of Agriculture and Food Desislava Taneva and her deputy Dr. Tsvetan Dimitrov with the purchase companies. According to the purchasers due to unfavorable weather conditions the crop is of lower quality than it was last year and part of it does not meet the minimum requirements. They pointed out that there are many cases when farmers planted more tobacco crop than they agreed to trade. Purchasers undertook to complete the campaign period on time.                                     


Ministry of Agriculture and Food, together with branch organizations and purchasers will prepare amendments to the Tobacco and Tobacco Products Act., which will create clear rules for all participants and will provide a higher quality of tobacco. "Our goal is manufacturers to have confidence that their tobacco is of high quality and they will be able to sell it at a good price," said Minister Taneva . She added that legislative changes will reduce unfair competition and will revive the popularity of Bulgaria as a producer of quality tobacco.
