Bulgaria: Progress Recovering from ASF

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BU2021-0019

In late April, the Government of Bulgaria (GOB) informed that most large commercial hog farms were once again eligible to ship pork meat to other European Union (EU) markets. The announcement followed the European Commission's (EC) decision to lift Bulgarian African swine fever (ASF) restrictions for live swine and pork from 20 municipalities in 14 regions. Persistent industry efforts to recover from ASF resulted in significant growth in Bulgaria’s hog inventory in early 2021.
