Chilled fruit and vegetable processing and storage company Glenberries is set to arrange a hothouse on 300 hectares in two years, investing GEL 200 million (€52 mln) in the project implementation.
Company founder Rafael Maghalashvili stated that the market demands natural and high-quality products, but the company has to import part of its raw materials form the neighboring countries.
At this stage, the company has broccoli and flower cabbage hothouses on 5 hectares and a strawberry hothouse on 11 hectares. Construction works are underway on additional 7 hectares as well. Maghalashvili plans to buy a land plot in Marneuli to arrange a strawberry hothouse on 25 hectares.
According to cbw.ge, Glenberries receives orders from the USA and Israel. Customers make orders for vegetables, chilled strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry. Glenberries launched operations in 2018. The initial investment marked GEL 9 million (€2.34 mln). The complex is located in Kareli, Shida Kartli Region.
