Georgian Domestic Dried Fruit Appears on the Market

Georgian domestic dried and farm delicacies produced by Skigi have recently appeared on the Georgian Market.

Skigi produces dried fruits from various produce grown on their own agricultural land and land purchased from locals. They produce dried fruit from kiwi, apple, tangerine, churchkhelas from nuts, hazel nuts and raisins, Tklapis, traditional Georgian pureed fruit roll-up leathers.

“Before their final form, the products go through a quite lengthy and complicated process. Fruits are being dried in a special drier. There the fruits are protected from insects and environmental impacts, there they maintain their beneficial properties,” Skigi Director Darejan Berdzenishvili stated.

The company plans to negotiate with a Georgian-Polish firm. Three people are employed at the company at this stage. Skigi was financed under the Produce in Georgia program and gained a grant of 5000 GEL.
