KEN is one of the first private meat-processing companies in Bulgaria, established in 1991 in Stara Zagora. KEN quickly became one of the leading manufacturers of fresh, cured and cooked smoked sausages in Bulgaria, as the wide product range of the company includes various sausages, smoked salami, hams, pates and scalded meats, as well as the much beloved frankfurter – KEN. In 2014 KEN created the Lord of the Frankfurters – the Lukanka-type frankfurter, which quickly became the delicious favourite on every table.

Through the years of its existence, KEN strictly follows its basic principles of ensuring uncompromising high quality of products, offering unique and specific tastes to its fans.

In order to achieve and maintain the superior quality and unique taste of its products, KEN constantly invests in new technologies and production facilities. KEN AD’s new factory opened in the Autumn of 2009 in Stara Zagora. Its total area is 9 500 sq.m. and it incorporates high-performance installations, provided by global leaders in this industry, as well as modern thermal tunnel-type chambers for the basic thermal meat processing.

The KEN brand includes some of the most popular meat products, as KEN Classic Frankfurter is the best liked frankfurter with the highest sales in Bulgaria.

KEN pays special attention to the packaging of its products. Apart from being attractive to the buyers, each package corresponds to the characteristics of the respective product, for which it was designed. Whether inedible or made of natural products, the KEN products packaging protect them and preserve their taste and flavour in the best possible way.
