Construction of a lavender distillery in Bulgaria
Setting up an innovative lavender distillery in response to increasing market demands for high quality, niche products.
In recent years, many new lavender plantations have been established in Bulgaria. At the same time, the processing capacity for raw lavender is insufficient. This was a major constraint in exploiting the full potential of the promising sector.
In this context, a family business decided to diversify its activities and to respond to the new trend towards healthy, organic products. They decided to invest in lavender processing and set up a distillery for raw bio-lavender. The investment included the construction of an industrial processing building with modern equipment.
The investment will increase the business’s revenues and ensure quality production through innovative technologies and strict control over the whole process. The investment provides/guarantees a secure income for a minimum of 10 years.
The investment allowed for the development of a new organic product in response to market demand.
Two new jobs were created.
The investment demonstrates the opportunities for young people/specialists to become young farmers, or entrepreneurs in rural areas.
