Project
Go Organic - Georgia

International Commitment

Go Organic – Georgia

The aim of this collaboration is to strengthen Georgian organic associations. The initiative involves expanding and improving the range of services offered in organic farming in the north-western regions of Georgia.

There are a large number of agricultural associations in Georgia, however, they often lack the professional expertise they would need in organic farming practices in order to offer companies the appropriate advice on how to develop their products, and farms the certifications and training opportunities  they need in order to bring them in line with international/European standards.

The aim of this project is to take stock of Georgia’s organic food industry, its stakeholders and any advisory and service structures that are already in place. Furthermore, it aims to deliver e-learning modules and online workshops on topics such as EU Organic and Naturland standards. The project will hopefully build the foundation for Naturland's longer-term involvement in Georgia.

Partners:

  • ELKANA is a Georgian organic farming association. It aims to promote the development of organic farming and improve Georgia's socio-economic situation, particularly in rural communities. The association currently represents over 2000 farmers, as well as farmers’ unions, cooperatives and businesses.
  • Sustain Caucasus International is a Georgian association that campaigns for sustainable development in rural areas and the mountainous regions of the Caucasus, although mainly in Georgia.
