Georgia, Tbilisi, May 10 / Trend N.Kirtskhalia /
First Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Georgia David Shervashizhe attended the opening of an agro-industrial complex in Badiauri village situated in the Sagarejo municipality of the country.
The complex includes a dairy plant producing different varieties of cheese, the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia reported on Friday. The agro-industrial complex also has a modern refrigeration system that is capable of taking 250 tons of fruit and vegetables, as well as a machinery section opened under the agricultural programme. The equipment mobilised by the section has processed 500 hectares of land. The complex also has a shop where you can buy the cheese produced at the venture.
"Establishment of such small ventures is very important for the future of our country. Primary production without processing will not bring the result we want. The Ministry of Agriculture is actively working in this direction. Our goal is stimulation of small farmers and entrepreneurs. We hope that within the scope of preferential agricultural loans such small enterprises will be opened in all municipalities," Shervashizhe said.
