Between 18 and 30 May, consultants from the International Trade Centre carried out an expert mission in the Western Part of Georgia, visiting 16 project beneficiary companies from the hazelnut, dried fruit and tea sectors.
The visits were organised in the framework of the Ready to Trade project, funded by the EU under its EU4Business initiative.
The purpose of the mission was to determine and finalise individual strategies for hazelnut and dried fruit producer companies, as well as to conduct an assessment of the premises of a tea factory and manufacturing process. International experts also met with company management and manufacturing staff to discuss the issues they encounter.
The EU-funded Eastern Partnership: Ready to Trade project helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access new markets with a focus on the EU, helping SMEs identify and comply with quality and standards to meet international requirements, linking them with buyers along the value chain, and providing cluster support.
