Thanks to the EUs Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) and support from the EU4BusinessEBRD 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.

Local products from the Khulo municipality of Ajara region of Georgia were presented at the KHULO FEST on 25 August. The local festival was organised with the help of the EU-supported project implemented within the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD).

At the event, local products and handicrafts were presented. In addition, the representatives of local touristic companies provided information on different touristic places. In total, 19 local producers exhibited their products.

Local folk groups performed during the festival. The event guests could enjoy the beautiful views of Argineti mountain.

The EU is supporting rural development in Georgia through its ENPARD programme. Aiming to reduce rural poverty, ENPARD has been implemented since 2013, with a total budget of 179.5 million. The first phase of ENPARD focused on developing national agriculture potential, while the second and third phases focus on creating economic opportunities for the rural population that go beyond agricultural activities.
