Eight companies have submitted applications for production of yogurt (kiselo mlyako) according to the Bulgarian State Standard (BSS) and three have already passed approval procedures. Currently, there are products of two companies - Danone - Serdika and Polidey-2 - on the market. Among the approved companies is also UMC.

The new BSS of yoghurt was made based on the repealed one several years ago. A compulsory requirement for the products is to contain the bacteria lactobacillus bulgaricus and have a shelf life of 20 days from the date of manufacture. Use of drinking water, milk cream and skimmed milk is permitted in the production.

Unlike standard repealed years ago, now the BSS has rules for the use of goat`s milk as well, and new physicochemical characteristics such as milk protein content, fat content and energy value.
