Walnuts are mostly sold as a snack item or for use as an candies ingredient, and also baked goods. About 90% of walnuts are sold as shelled.
Roughly 40% of the walnut production is utilized domestically, with an additional 25% kept for storage, and the other 35% are for exporting.
For Bulgarian walnut production companies, Turkey and the European Union countries are the largest export market. The production from Bulgaria is always preferred because of its very low price and very high quality.
