Delikates Zhitnitsa stands for quality, tradition and the spirit of Zhitnitsa – a picturesque village in Southern Bulgaria, which holds memories from ancient times. But “Delikates Zhitnitsa” is not just a trademark. It is a lovemark. It’s for the people who insist on authentic recipes and believe that traditions should be preserved.
We believe that the good taste of our products comes as a result of abiding by three important principles: quality, efficiency and safety. For us these are not just words.
The quality of our products is a result of carefully selected recipes, high-quality meat and the range of spices we use.
The efficiency of our production is guaranteed by our choice of equipment – the machines we use to process the meat are made by leading companies in the field.
We introduced a food safety system, compliant with the international standard ISO 22000:2005. In other words – everything we do complies with the highest standards for quality and security.
Our idea of success is to make sure that anytime you want “something delicious at your table”, our products are your first choice.
But the most important thing for our work is what you think of it.
