The export of Georgian wine to Russia will be conducted by a new association tasked with the dissemination of reliable information on Georgian products in Russia, as well as the organization of contacts between Georgian producers and Russian companies and importers.
A presentation of the Association of Exporters of Georgian wine was held in Tbilisi by the head of the center of the Center of Economic Cooperation between Georgia and Russia, Georgiy Seturidze.
The new trade association was established by several wine producing companies.
As Seturidze noted, the Center of Economic Cooperation between Georgia and Russia, as the main representative of the Russian branch association in Georgia, will provide consulting and professional assistance to the new association.
"There are a lot of factors hindering exports. Individuals and companies often spread incorrect information about Georgia, and, in particular, about contractors, producers, prices and terms of payment. This association was established in order to provide registration and certification of Georgian production by the institution of Onishchenko for further exports," Seturidze said.
According to him, a letter will be sent on Wednesday to Rospotrebnadzor with notification of the goals and objectives of the association and expression of readiness for cooperation.
The Association of Exporters of Georgian wine is going to work closely with both the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia and its member organizations, and with Rospotrebnadzor and authoritative Russian organizations defending the rights of consumers.
