Blueberry seedling nursery Green Solutions plans to arrange a blueberry seedling plant and a refrigerator complex in the village of Shroma in the municipality of Lagodekhi.
According to company founder Roman Chkhenkeli, the company will implement the GEL 27 mln (€7.3 mln) project in a test regime. It will include other cultures as well.
Cbw.ge quoted Chkhenkeli as saying: “This year we are working on two major projects – a blueberry seedling nursery and a refrigerator complex. Investment value of both projects is GEL 2.7 million. The seedling nursery will be arranged in about 0.5-hectare hothouses to create ideal conditions, while the refrigerator complex will be arranged in another 0.5-hectare space.”
“The last project was designed in Moldova. We plan to participate in the Agriculture Development program. If we are a success and produce high-quality seedlings, we will expand our nursery and add vine and fruit seedlings.”
The refrigerator complex will employ 10-15 persons on permanent basis, but on season, this number will rise to 30 persons.
