Bulgaria: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

The Government of Bulgaria (GOB) views agricultural biotechnology skeptically and Bulgarian nongovernmental organizations (NGO), green activists, the organic industry, bee keepers and small-farm advocacy organizations actively push an anti-biotech agenda. To date in 2017, Bulgaria has generally positioned itself as anti-biotech vis-à-vis European Commission (EC) policy development. It has also decided to “opt-out” in terms of cultivation. Bulgarian poultry and livestock stakeholders continue to import biotech soybeans and derived feed ingredients.
