FEAST IN TIMES OF PLAGUE: How the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency gave away millions for animal carcass disposal

The Anti-Corruption Fund (ACF) has filed a report to the Public Financial Inspection Agency regarding a procurement procedure for the disposal of animal carcasses, an activity which is directly linked to public health and has serious economic implications. Since March 2018, the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency (BFSA) has spent a record amount on this activity, awarding contracts worth nearly BGN 30 million (EUR 15 million). The funds were allocated to two private companies which used mobile incineration installations to process an unprecedentedly large number of carcasses despite the fact that such installations have much lower capacity – as much as seven times lower – compared to the capacity of regular incineration plants.
