"The TV Pirveli company continues releasing false and defaming information, trying to undermine the measures conducted on the initiative of Defense Minister Irakli Garibashvili aimed to ensure the best feeding conditions for Georgia's troops," reads the statement by Georgia's Defense Ministry.
Following the statement, all the accusations on the low quality of the Georgian soldiers' food and suspicious deals with providers are absurd.
As the Defense Ministry reports, all the Alpuri cheese company products were immediately removed from the Georgian army's ration once the Ministry detected violations.
"The food diversity, local meat, and other products supply and quality control are priorities of the minister, and critical steps were made to improve the quality," the statement reads.
Under the statement, the Ministry created the Standardization and Quality Control Department to ensure a high quality of food, kitchen inventory, supplies, and infrastructure, defines NATO standards, and carries out the quality monitoring.
"Other controlling mechanisms have also been improved. All the problems are eradicated swiftly, and all the troops' feeding standards are fully met," the statement reads.
