Bulgarian Food Safety Agency (BFSA) is an integrated body for controls of safety and quality of food and feed in Republic of Bulgaria. Being established in the beginning of 2011, BFSA follows the best European practices for implementation of highest standards of controls in the areas of safety and quality of food, food- and feed additives and drinks, veterinary medicine and animal welfare, plant protection and fertilizers, phytosanitary controls, feed, border inspections and others. We all, as BFSA experts, are performing strict controls throughout the whole food chain, i.e. from the field, farm and/or stable up to the table on daily basis.
