The US Embassy Tbilisi released a statement on social media this week saying that the American leadership is happy with the fact that the export of blueberries from Georgia is growing steadily. Last year, the profit exceeded 14 million dollars.
“Blueberry exports from Georgia are growing steadily, and last year alone, profits exceeded $14 million. This is gratifying for the US government, as since 2018 we have been supplying blueberry growers with modern technologies and skills. As a result, we get more jobs and increased income for people in the regions.”
“During her visit to Guria, US Ambassador Degnan visited one of the largest blueberry producers and toured the US Government-supported cold storage facility. Through this cold storage, Blueberry Farm Ltd, which has its own production, will purchase crops from neighboring producers.
“30% of the cold storage facilities in Georgia were created with the support of the United States.”
