Who are we

“NIKO-86” was established in 1990, and is one of the first private companies in Bulgaria. The secret behind our success and our permanent growth is not only based on our portfolio of more than 10 world-recognized brands, but also on the professionalism and consistency of our team. This makes us one of the best distribution companies in Bulgaria. Our clients are all the international retailers presented in Bulgaria, altogether with most of the Bulgarian local chains. Nowadays we deliver our products up to 7000 points of sales. We provide for our partners with assistance with marketing, merchandising, and everything they need in Bulgaria. We create market leaders and many world recognized producers like BOLTON MANITOBA, RISO SCOTTI, GALLINA BLANCA, MONINI, MAINA PANETTONE, VICENZI and many others trusted us. We turned MEGLIO, MONINI AND RISO SCOTTI into leaders on the Bulgarian market, thanks to our highly qualified trade and marketing teams.

Today we continue to develop and satisfy all the needs of our customers with the same enthusiasm as it was 30 years ago.
