Georgian-Swiss company Blauenstein Georgia has been operating in the village of Shardometi, the Racha Region, since 2008 in the cattle-breeding sector.
Currently, the company manufactures only meat products that are supplied only to the domestic market, namely, to the company’s brand store in Tbilisi, the Georgian founder of Blauenstein Georgia, told the Business Contact.
The annualized output makes up 2500-3000 livestock. The company plans to launch dairy production too.
“In about 2-3 years we will have a due quantity of cows and we will launch dairy production too”, Irakli Kervalishvili said.
At this stage, the company’s farm has 600 cows and high-productive Swiss cattle is received through artificial fertilization. The weight of each cow is about 800-1100 kilograms.
We cooperate with local farms that are being constructed under the required standards. The company trusts its cattle to these farms and farmers receive due wages for this service, Irakli Kervalishvili said.
“We have 8 farmers. In the near future we plan to increase the number up to 20 farmers and this signifies that in 2-3 years the Racha Region will have 20 farmers with Swiss skills”, Mr. Kervalishvili noted.
As of 2015 Blauenstein Georgia has invested more than 18 million GEL. The company plans to double investments in 5 years, including for dairy production development.
