  • Catering facilities;

Checks on the establishments for production and wholesale of food of non-animal origin will be carried out by three inspectors and on the retail sale establishments - from two inspectors. Experts of the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency will monitor the compliance of the food establishments according to building facilities and equipment, technical documentation, good manufacturing and hygiene practices, compliance with the requirements of the Regulation on food labeling and presentation.
