Georgian greens producer accesses
EU markets thanks to EU-supported credit line
Thanks to the EU’s Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) and support
from the EU4Business–EBRD Credit Line, a company from Tskaltubo region has
become the first producer in Georgia to export Georgian herbs to the EU market.
Herbia Ltd expanded its greenhouse farming and renewed its packaging equipment
after it benefited from the credit line of the EU and the European Bank for
Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
It specialises in growing dill, parsley, coriander, celery, various types of
lettuce, green onions, basil, mint and oregano. The founder, Zurab Janelidze,
says the money the company received helped increase its production volume and
find its own niche in the local market.
“In 2017, production doubled”, says Zurab. “Sales grew to both local and foreign
markets. In Europe, we have a lot of demand for greens. We will use this credit
to increase the volume.”
