Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct.12 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia imported wheat from Germany and Hungary. About ten Georgian companies for the first time imported 15,000 tons of grain from Germany and Hungary, head of the "Agricom" company Koki Osipov said. Cost of tons of wheat amounts to $335-340.
According to him, the grain used in Georgia for two weeks and we are quite satisfied with it.
Georgian companies in the near future will import grain from other countries of Europe and the USA.
According to Osipov, the Georgian market is provided with required amount of grain till late November.
Traditional suppliers of wheat to Georgia were Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, but this year due to crop failure, they increased the prices of their grain and limited exports to other countries.
The Agricom is a representative of "Bunge" - the largest grain trader in the world.
