Vano Goglidze, Kula company director:
The year of 2017 was quite complicated for us, on the one hand, because of Georgian currency devaluation, on the other hand, frosts started in spring. In Shida Kartli fruits froze and the product price hiked. Despite this, we managed to maintain prices and quality. In 2017 we built a new enterprise, which started production of meat products. We intensified exports too and these operations brought currency to us. We launched production of sugar-free products (sauces, juices, jams, stewed fruit …)
We produce 220 varieties of products and export them to 25 countries. The USA and Germany are major exports markets for us.
In 2018 we plan to produce bio juices. To this end we plan to expand our plant and invest additional 2 million USD in expansion plan. We will employ 50 persons in addition. Currently, our company employs more than 300 citizens.
