Businessman and MP Gogi Topadze has not yet started building an enterprise complex.
Topadze states “Commersant” that the issue was not solved as talks about the construction of oil, soap and milk processing enterprises in Kakheti and Kartli were held with the former Minister Shalva Pipia. So far, he has not met the new Minister of Agriculture Otar Danelia.
The MP considers the Partnership Fund (PF) and Produce in Georgia project the main sources of funding. Topadze suggests that the construction of the oil processing plant will cost approximately 7-8 million while soap production – 5-6 million. At the first stage 400-420 people will be employed at the enterprises.
The MP says that along with oil production, it is planned to produce the soap as the soap is produced from sunflower oil fatty residues.
As for dairy production, Topadze notes that as a result of pressure, food which is used for cattle will be produced from the sunflower waste.
Topadze is going to meet with the Minister next year to discuss the issue of the enterprise complex. He adds that the Prime Minister has been aware of this issue.
