​President Salome Zourabichvili Visits Company Herbia and Otia Ioseliani’s Farm in Tskaltubo

To support the development of small business in Tskaltubo, President Salome Zourabichvili has visited the company Herbia that produces eco-friendly and organic products, greens and vegetables.
Zurab Janelidze, Director of Herbia has informed the President and local Government representatives of the company’s activities, stressing that Herbia’s products are in high demand both in local and foreign markets. Zurab Janelidze has also discussed the challenges that local agricultural companies and entrepreneurs face.
President Zourabichvili has also visited the farm of Otia Ioseliani, renowned Georgian writer. In the farm, Otia Ioseliani’s grandson, named after his grandfather, manufactures beer and also furthers the traditions of honey-making and Qvevri wine-making.
According to Otia Ioseliani, traditional beer and Qvevri wine are extremely popular among tourists. In his view, it would be good to revive the tradition of artisan beer production and differentiate it from factory beer production. This will enable local population to brand artisan beer and penetrate new markets.
President Zourabichvili’s visit aims at assessing the potential of Georgia’s regions and supporting their further development.
