In coordination with the Georgian Economic Ministry, the SOCAR Georgia Gas Company, which represents one of the largest gas distributors in Georgia, has reduced gas tariff for the bakeries and bread factories by 0.10 GEL.
The facilities will pay 0.76 GEL instead of 0.86 GEL per one cubic meter of gas in April and May 2020.
As Georgia's Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava declared, the decision would allow the factories to maintain the bread price, and it is of utmost importance for the population of Georgia.
She thanked the company leadership for the decision.
SOCAR transferred 200,000 GEL to the Business Association of Georgia in support of the StopCoV foundation.
SOCAR Energy Georgia Director Mahir Mammadov donated 25,000 GEL to the fund.
SOCAR also increased the gasification coefficient in Georgia. It has more than 10,000 subscribers.
A total of 46% of Georgia was gasified in 2008 while the rate reached 78% in 2020.
