Therefore, we manufacture Georgia tea by use of our technologies. Here we produce high-standard green and black tea. We plan to expand business and implement a major project and increase investment portfolio”, Chan Va Khu, Chedzan Ranran Biotechnology Company founder, said.
Goner Salia, the Chinese company partner, noted: “There is much demand for Georgian tea on Chinese market. The first consignment was sold for 80 and 100 USD. Quality and production technology have been improved for the second consignment and now the price has risen to 300 USD on Chinese market.
