We believe that production of yoghurt is a science. Therefore, we apply a scientific approach toward this process. In order to demonstrate that these are not just words, we have established a modern Centre for Research and Development, where in-depth studies related to the industrial production of starters for traditional dairy products and development of new technologies have taken place for almost half a century already. These studies are of national importance and play a key role in the development of the dairy processing industry in Bulgaria. Of course, this kind of success would be impossible without the people behind it. These are the highly qualified researchers and specialists employed by one of the 8 laboratories of the research centre of “LB Bulgaricum”.
