The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) are boosting sustainable growth and development in Georgia’s rural areas by protecting and promoting the country’s traditional products.
Georgia’s rich cultural heritage and natural beauty are matched by a wealth of unique foods and wines. Supported by FAO and EBRD, the country has taken steps to protect such products – like its famous sulguni and Tushetian guda cheeses – by developing geographical indications (GIs) and other origin-linked labels.
Over the last two years, the two institutions have worked closely with Georgia’s Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture and Sakpatenti, the national intellectual property office, with support from the Georgian Biological Farming Association ‘Elkana’ and REDD.
