This year for the first time the state supports the fruit- and vegetable-growing sector with 15 million levs. The money will reach all producers only if their produce is quality. This was announced by the Minister of Agriculture and Food Dr. Miroslav Naydenov, who opened the festival "Golden peach" in the village of Gavrailovo, Sliven. He wished the people of the ‘Peach Valley’ to enjoy a good harvest, increase their competitiveness and to restore the village’s market positions of the past. Our peaches are in no way worse than the Greek ones, so let us return to those years when this region was famous for its production, the minister urged.
The celebrations in the village of Gavrailovo are held for the 11th time and today the governor of Sliven region - Marin Kavrakov, the mayor of Sliven - Kolio Milev and the mayor of the village - Dimitar Andreev attended.
