A Reportage on the Organic Tahini Factory in Bulgaria

On 26 October BNT, Bulgarian National Television broadcasted a reportage on the organic tahini factory in the village of Kondovo, Municipality of Ivaylovgrad. Krastyo Deliivanov, petar Ivanov, Assen Kehayov, Iliya Mihalev and other organic producers from the New New Thracian Gold network in the Eastern Rhodopes presented their work and achievements.

The first organic tahini factory in Bulgaria - BIOTERRA – IVAYLOVGRAD Ltd. - was officially opened on 23 May 2013. Its opening becomes possible thanks to the expert and financial support by the Bulgarian-Dutch project New Thracian Gold (NTG) for the sustainable development of the Eastern Rhodopes.

In 2010, a group of fellow agricultural producers from Ivaylovgrad region received knowledge and advice from the NTG project on organic growing of cereals and sesame. In 2012, NTG provided machines for improving yields, for weeding and a combiner for improving quality. As a result, the cooperators registered the ‘Bioterra-Ivaylovgrad’ Ltd. aimed at cooperation and adding value to primary produce. NTG project helped them again by providing machines for processing of sesame to a tahini paste.
