GEMUANI – A DELICIOUS TREAT – PERFECT FOR ANY OCCASION!
Satisfying the Demand for Healthful Fruits & Vegetables
Situated in the bioactively diverse Western region of Georgia and nestled between the Black Sea and Caucasus Mountains, Gemuani Ltd maintains 111 ha of prosperous tea, hazelnut, and kiwifruit orchards alongside its state of the art processing plant for fruits and vegetables.
Established in 2011 in Samegrelo, Gemuani Ltd is recognized as an innovator in agricultural production and processing, earning a reputation for quality oriented, nutritionally rich, and highly prized agricultural products.
With its mission to produce healthful foods and preserve the environment, the company maintains the highest, internationally recognized, standards for food safety.
A BIOACTIVELY RICH ENVIRONMENT
In geological terms, the Caucasus Mountains are considered relatively young and pristine. From an agricultural perspective, this means that conditions for growth remain vital, rich and bioactively diverse. Under these circumstances, and especially on the sunny southern slopes where Gemuani Ltd is situated, it is no surprise that the fruits and vegetables grown in this region are known for their robust nutritional value and flavor.
A SOLID AGRICULTURAL FOUNDATION
Production for Gemuani Ltd started with a state of the art kiwi plantation. Being surrounded by the natural beauty of the southern Caucasus, Gemuani quickly became a popular tourist attraction. More importantly, their kiwifruit (Hayward variety) has been laboratory tested and is recognized as the sweetest and most colorful kiwifruit produced in the region.
FOCUSED ON HEALTH AND SAFETY
Gemuani takes pride in their ability to deliver the best tasting, exceptionally sweet and intensely green kiwifruit that Georgia has to offer. While their pristine natural setting is an important contributing factor that cannot be overlooked, they are emphatic about avoiding nitrates, pesticides and other such harmful agents as well as maintaining an undeniably safe and hygienic workplace.
“We understand that the quality of our products is directly influenced by the training we deliver to our staff and the standards we expect them to follow.” says Nona Tordia, Gemuani’s Managing Director. She continues “We have invested a significant amount of time and resources to create a working environment that meet or exceeds international best practices. We know that, when exceptionally high standards are meticulously maintained, we will be rewarded with a line of products that is second to none.”
Recognizing the need for constant innovation and expansion, and a growing demand for more healthful fruits and vegetables, Gemuani has engineered and opened a state of the art freeze-drying facility with financial support from Agriculture Projects Management Agency (APMA) of Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Economics and USAID’s REAP. Freeze-Drying is an all-natural process that removes 97% of the moisture from fresh fruits and vegetables. Raw materials are deep frozen, then transferred to a freeze-drying chamber where moisture, quickly converted into gaseous form, is removed under low pressure without the influence of heat.
With this added capacity, and taking advantage of the abundant fruit supply that comes from their own plantation as well as others in the region, the company has launched Gemuani Crisps – a line of all natural, freeze-dried snacks. Made from fresh, whole fruit without additives, sweeteners or preservatives, these light, crunchy, and delicious freeze-dried fruit snacks are perfect for supermarkets, convenience stores, and other such retailers catering to healthy lifestyles.
Today, the company has FDA approval and with the support of USAID’s REAP, the company has earned a GLOBALG.A.P certificate, and has set the standard for state of the art plantation operations in Georgia. In addition, in 2018, in accordance with TÜV HELLAS (TÜV NORD) S.A procedures, it is certified that GEMUANI LTD applies Food safety management system ISO 22000:2005 for Freezing and Freeze Drying of Fruits and Vegetables.
