Summary

Summary: 
The Bulgarian boutique company, established in the beginning of 2019, is producing high quality organic walnut oil using its own secret recipe and know-how. It represents manual cold pressing in an oak bin, which is a technology used in France back in 1803. The company is looking for partners to work with under a distribution service agreement or a commercial agency agreement.

Description

Description: 

Bulgarian company producing cold-pressed organic walnut oil, vegan walnut flour/protein and acacia honey with rose oil is willing to enlarge its partners network and enter new markets.
Currently, the company is focused mainly on the production and has some distribution locally on the Bulgarian market and also in France and Germany. The company has all materials and labels ready to be used in German, English or French. It is listed on Amazon.de for the German market. At the moment the company is specialized in making only organic walnut oil, organic walnut flour and organic acacia honey with rose oil, but it’s in the process of preparing organic -hempseed oil and flour with the same technology and know-how.
The products of the company have been validated at numerous international exhibitions and are certified.
For all the interested parties the company is ready to provide free samples and is also open for discussions for exclusivity on the market if necessary.
The walnut oil is preferred by gourmet lovers and all the people interested in healthy eating. It is also taken as a dietary supplement because it contains huge levels of vegan omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. That is why the company sells it successfully in many organic stores and large chains.
As it is an organic vegan product, the walnut oil is easily listed in the retail outlets since the trend of using vegan products is facing constant growth. At the same time the oil is compact, expensive and is a very suitable product for distribution over long distances.
Currently, the production capacity of the company is 15000 bottles per month.
From the residual (pressed walnuts) the company produces its second product- bio walnut flour which is practically vegan walnut protein (approx. 40% content) and it’s also made by hand in a stone mill.
Another interesting point is that walnut oil turns out to be a very useful cosmetic product precisely because of Omega 3,6,9 and Vitamin E, and could be used for face, body and hair. It is precisely because of this fact that it is possible for the company to seek a partnership with established brands for premium organic cosmetics, which could be interested to implement the raw material of the Bulgarian company in their production. The flour itself can be used in various recipes for peeling and scrub for face and body. It also contains a lot of Vitamin E, Magnesium and Zinc.
The third product of the Bulgarian company is organic honey with creamy texture associated with the flavor of Bulgarian rose. The desire of the company with this product is to have honey with the symbolic for Bulgaria rose scent. It contains acacia honey, linden honey for freshness and freeze-dried rose petals and rose oil from the famous Rose valley. This is a boutique gourmet product presented in a high-end and tastefully decorated box.
The company is interested in finding distributors or commercial agents for its products and thus to expand its business abroad.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
This is the only company on the Balkans and some of the few worldwide that still produces pure and truly cold pressed Organic Walnut Oil, as it was made centuries ago. Their Organic Walnut Flour is 36% Vegan Protein. The company has all the necessary bio certificates and analyzes. The oil itself is hand made , has no contact with metal and is made without any heating (up to 21°C). The company uses French technology from 1803 and that makes its products of high consumer value. Thanks to the technology used, their oil has an acidity level less than 0.1% and very balanced natural taste of fresh and raw walnuts. For comparison some of the most expensive premium cold-pressed oils have more than 0.2%. Although the processing is manual the company has high capacity - over 15000 bottles per month.
