Markogi LTD originates from Kontrakt-Nikolay Gadjev, founded by eng. Nikolay Gadjev, initially for trading.
Nikolay Gadjev built a workshop for processing and preserving forest mushrooms. The whole production was exported to France.
The workshop becomes a small factory for production of canned vegetables and Bulgarian ljutenitsa (cooked Autumn vegetables). The factory has its own roasting tunnels for peppers and eggplant, also cold storages with capacity of 140 tons. The trademark Markogi was created and patented.
Markogi Ltd succeeds Kontrakt-Nikolay Gadjev. Partners are the members of the Gadjevi family.
A new factory was built, which is in accordance with the EU legislation for food production. During the same year was created the trademark Veganitsa, which combines the words Vegan and Ljutenitsa. This trademarks is used for production of sterilized 100g pouches of Ljutenitsa and Ketchup.
Today Markogi Ltd is a leading producer of Ljutenitsa, Kyopoolu, Maligiano and other products typical for the Bulgaria region. The factory is in accordance with all requirements of the EU for production of food products. The company has implemented HACCP system for internal quality control. The factory is built on two floors. The first floor is storage rooms and cold storages. The second floor is for production and a sales store. During the summer-autumn season, there are up to 110 workers at the factory.
The capacity of the factory is more than 1.5 tons Ljutenitsa per day.
Markogi offers more than 50 different products for the domestic market and for export.
The recipe of Ljutenitsa “Markogi” is inherited from our great grandparents. They have carefully selected the best quality peppers, eggplants and tomatoes in order to achieve a full flavor and for their children and grandchildren to enjoy food with an abundance of vitamins.
Our Ljutenitsa is not fried, it is vacuum cooked, which makes it healthy and recommended for consumption by people with sensitive stomachs. There are no preservatives, colorants, or chemicals.
Lab analysis shows that Ljutenitsa Markogi contains very high Antioxidant Activity, because of the high quality raw material. In 100 g Ljutenitsa there is the daily dose of Vitamin C.
Sometime after Ljutenitsa in jars became a part of the company’s portfolio, many of its fans became nostalgic for the old days, when they personally filled jars and sterilized them. This is the beginning of the Bulk Ljutenitsa from Hrishteni village.
