Poultry farm construction works in the village of Metekhi, Kaspi municipality, will start in spring 2019. The farm will supply 250 tons of chicken meat to the market starting September 2019, LLC GLC director and founder Giorgi Verulashvili told BM.GE.
The farm construction works were to start in 2018, but European partners failed to supply required equipment and the process was protracted, Verulashvili said.
Five million USD will be invested in the poultry farm and 1.5 million USD will be allocated by Partnership Fund, he said. The farm will grow Broiler chickens and the
farm will supply the products to the market in both raw and frozen form.

“We have two poultry-breeding reproctors, where one-day chickens grow. These farms are located in the villages of Noste and Barnabiantkari, Kaspi municipality. Both farms work at full capacity. We will supply chickens to our new farm from these sources”, Giorgi Verulashvili said.
