Swiss chocolate producer Camille Bloch, which made a 40 million GEL investment in the Kakheti region of Georgia and planted hazelnut orchards on 50 ha of land, expects its first hazelnut harvest by 2025.
Hazelnuts harvested in Georgia will be used for Camille Bloch’s famous chocolates.
Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava met Daniel Bloch, the president and owner of the company this morning.
We are ready to stand by the company as much as possible and support it within the Produce in Georgia state programme", Turnava said after the meeting.
She said when it comes to European investments, the good thing is that they bring not only money to Georgia and job creation, but also new knowledge, technologies and experience 'which is so important for our agriculture sector'.
Camille Bloch entered Georgia in 2020 with the support of the country's investment attraction agency, Enterprise Georgia.
The company’s hazelnut plantations are in Sighnaghi municipality of Kakheti.
