EU-supported software to help monitor local food market prices in Georgia

December 21, 2017

Georgian farmers and policymakers now have a new and innovative tool at their fingertips. A new data source will allow Georgians to monitor local prices for up to one hundred agricultural and food products in markets throughout the country.

This tool can be found on the farmers’ online portal, developed under the EU supported European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD) in close collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Agriculture.

According to ENPARD, the up-to-date statistics on local food prices – everything from maize and hazelnuts to dill and Imeretian cheese – shall help rural families and farmers’ associations ensure that their production is in line with market trends.

The European Union is supporting agriculture and rural development in Georgia through its ENPARD Programme. Implemented since 2013 with a total budget of €102 million (2013-2019), the main goal of ENPARD is to reduce rural poverty in Georgia.
