Agriculture Minister Miroslav Naydenov confirmed Friday that no cantaloupes imported from the US were sold on the Bulgarian market, adding that if there were imports of that type of fruit, they arrived from neighboring countries.

He went on to say that Bulgaria firmly supported the newly passed EU rules forcing all producers to mark the fat, sugar and salt contents on prepackaged food from 2014.

Under the rules approved Thursday by EU ministers, packaging will also have to show the amount of calories and the carbohydrate content, and all fresh meats will have to be labeled with their country of origin.
