A well-known Swiss Camille Bloch Company, producing chocolate, will plant hazelnut trees in Georgia.
The company plans to use the nuts harvested in Georgia for its product.
Georgian PM Giorgi Gakharia and Company CEO Daniel Bloch discussed the project details during their meeting at the Swiss town of Davos, as part of the World Economic Forum.
Camille Bloch has already registered the company in Georgia and sought a land plot of 651-hectare area in Lagodekhi municipality, the Georgian region of Kakheti.
The company aims to cultivate nuts by using new technology. It plans to employ 40 people as part of the investment.
When meeting with the company officials, Georgian PM Gakhria noted that the Georgian government is ready to support the opening of the company office or enterprise in Georgia.
Camille Bloch dates back about 90 years and produces 3,700 tonnes of chocolate on an annual basis.
