The Deputy Minister of Economy and Energy, Bulgaria, Branimir Botev recently discussed at a meeting in Varna the assessment criteria and acquisition of the category 'Green Star.'
The 'Green Star' identifies establishments that use eco, organic or natural products and will give additional credibility to attract more customers, according to Botev.
The discussion was attended by representatives of the Association of Restaurants and Hotels in the city, the management of St. Constantine and Elena resort and the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food, Bulgaria, Burhan Abazov.
Regarding the criteria Abazov stated that the fruits and vegetables should be locally produced, as well as the meat products – from free-range animals.
The initiative is a part of the five measures to be undertaken in the field of tourism on the proposal of Botev. As part of the initiative the Ministry of Economy and Energy is to partner with the Bulgarian tourist industry and national association Made in Bulgaria.
