The price for quota year 2012/2013 is set at BGN 0.01 per kg of cow’s milk for both deliveries and direct sale.
The so-called “quota exchange”, where individual milk quotas are transferred to another producer without the holding to which they are attached, was launched for the fourth year running in August 2012. In October, approved candidates were notified and given a 1-month window to pay the due amounts. Where no payments were made for the requested quantities, State Fund Agriculture announced on its website a fresh sale of the leftover amounts. A total 244 409 kg is up for grabs for delivery and an additional 95 313 kg for direct sale.
