History

CIMA 99 Ltd. was founded by Mr. Tsvetan Zhekov. In 1992 he decided to quit his steady job in a factory owned by the state and to establish his own company. Starting the business he took a mortgage on his own house, he rented a place and made his first modest investment in a small production shop of soft-drinks. Building an independent business, it was proved to be a quite a challenge. The first years were tough for the company which struggled to survive. In 1996 Mr. Zhekov decided to change the main company operational activity and turned to jam production. That really meant starting the business from scratch. The main aim was to produce jam of the home-made-type with extremely high quality that was not offered on the market at that time.

Initially, the equipment was not much different from the pots that are used in making jam at home. The production was mostly done manually and at first, the employees were only family members. Clients very soon appreciated the qualities of the product and it found its steady place on the shelves and counters of supermarkets and shops. At the price of hard work, persistence and ambition, year after year, the company grew stronger and bigger.

Now CIMA 99 ltd is leading producer of jam in Bulgaria and it owns a factory located in the most fertile region of Bulgaria – The Thracian plain. The company has 65 employees working full time all year around. The production capacity of the factory amounts over 15 tons/shift, over 80 types of products. Many of the CIMA’s products are export to USA, Israel, Russia, Japan, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Spain, etc.

Mission

We produce the most delicious sweet moments for everyone, with passion, love and striving for perfection.

Vision

To be the first choice of our consumers and customers from the trade network, gastronomy and food industry in Bulgaria. Our ambition is to become a leading manufacturer in the category of jams in Southeast Europe.
