AGROTIME

Since its foundation in 1992,  Agrotime Limited has developed successfully to become one of the leading Bulgarian agricultural companies. Throughout the years the company has proven itself to be a great example for modern innovative agriculture, and has demonstrated how the implementation of  good practices in development and management of agricultural companies can be applied in Bulgarian conditions.

Constantly striving for improvement and innovation –  through investment in the education of its employees, by the introduction of know-how, implementation of good practices, utilisation of modern equipment and – last but not least, good management, Agrotime provides proof that the agricultural sector in Bulgaria can be a dynamic and competitive contributor to the Bulgarian economy.

Elected in 1997  at the World Economic Forum as one of the 500 top-performing companies in Central and Eastern Europe, nowadays Agrotime is one of the biggest producers and exporters of grains. Along with our daughter-company Annona Grain JSC we cultivate some 8,000 hectares (20,000 acres)  in North-Eastern Bulgaria – in the region of Razgrad and Isperih.

Agrotime is also one of the biggest employers in the region, providing permanent employment to 370 people and hiring every year around 120 seasonal workers. Alongside the grain production, the company is developing through diversification – especially through the production of fruits.

Agrotime also possesses and runs one of the largest pig operations in Bulgaria – with annual capacity of 60,000 pigs.

Our products are sold throughout Europe, North America and the Middle East. The range of customers spans from bird food manufacturers to bread factories, to flour mills and large retailers, some of them having been our partners for more than twenty years.

We also work in cooperation with leading scientific institutes, agricultural companies, and respected individual consultants across Europe, the United States and Bulgaria, striving to implement the best of their experiences to our needs.
