Dried Fruit Factory to Open in Georgia

A dried fruit processing factory will open in the Kareli region, Georgia in May 2016. Their high-quality products, packaged to European standards, will be on the local market and be exported as well.

According to the factory director, Giorgi Kvirikadze, at the moment dried fruit is only being produced in Georgia in very small numbers with the market dominated by imported products. Negotiations have started with several countries including Germany, Israel and Ukraine.

The factory will receive fruit not only from its own gardens but also from the local population.

In total more than 1 million GEL was spent on the factory maintenance, including 650,000 GEL on refrigeration and processing machinery installation.

The factory will open in May and 30 people will be employed.
