This was the first Cold Chain management in the Caucasus region which was aimed at strengthening the trade relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan. Khanishvili further stated that “With global challenges – the Covid pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war, it is important to help countries realize agricultural production.”

 “I think the development of refrigeration farms and implementation of international standards in the production process will contribute to the process of Georgia’s integration into the EU,” said USAID head of the Georgian Economic Growth Office, Marik A. Olson.

 The conference, organized by the USAID Agriculture Program, World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) and Georgian Association of Refrigeration and Logistics (GCSLA) aims to promote trade unions as well as regional export.
