Featured photo: Bolstering the dairy industry in Georgia
Limited financing opportunities in Georgia made it difficult for the country’s dairy industry to expand production and guarantee quality. In 2009, Sante GMT, the largest dairy and juice production facility in Georgia, was approved for a $10 million loan from OPIC to help the business expand business operations and increase production. In a few years, Sante GMT expanded its business to include improved milk collection and better distribution infrastructure in Georgia. As a result, Sante GMT is increasing the standard quality of milk and other dairy products sold in the market in Georgia – making it safer for buyers and consumers.
