MOSCOW, February 11 (Itar-Tass) – Georgia shows its products at the ProdExpo international exhibition of food, beverages and food raw materials in Moscow for the first time in seven years. On display at the annual exhibition that opened on Monday are various lemonades, sauces, juices, as well as wines and brandies, Maxim Savchuk, head of the office of the Georgian Union of Exporters in Russia told ltar-Tass.
“All the products are made of natural ingredients,” Savchuk said. “All products that went into the making of sauces, beverages and jams were grown in Georgia,” he said. ”They do not contain preserving agents and are made by pasteurization,” he noted.
Savchuk said the Georgian Union of Exporters would not be concluding contracts for the delivery of wines and brandies at the exhibition because of the ban by Rospotrebnadzor Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare. The situation is changing these days and, probably, the ban will be lifted in the next two months, as Rospotrebnadzor head Gennady Onishchenko had said earlier.
Representatives of the Georgian National Wine Agency told reporters on Monday that Tbilisi referred to Moscow “the complete list of Georgian companies wishing to work in Russia to deliver wines and mineral water.” They said the companies listed “are ready to accept inspections by Russian specialists.”
“Georgian producers readily respond to positive changes taking place ‘in the higher quarters’,” Savchuk said. He said there is a possibility of the signing of protocols of intent for the delivery of Georgian wines at ProdExpo 2013. “We see at the exhibition serious interest in our products,” Savchuk noted.
“Our companies guarantee that their products are safe and of good quality,” said the representative of the Georgian Union of Exporters. The Union consisting of 24 companies was registered in 2010.
