A training seminar in Georgia has attempted to increase awareness of food safety and quality standards in the country.

The Rural Communities Development Agency (RCDA), partner of Czech NGO ‘People in Need’ held training in Tbilisi, for civil society organisations and Local Action Groups (LAGs) from Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Kakheti and Kvemo Kartli region.

It increased participants' awareness of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) agreement with the EU in terms of food safety and quality standards.

This enables them to share knowledge and information with farmers groups and cooperatives, small farmers and the public.

Topics such as food safety requirements for products made in Georgia to the EU market, the difference between current and previously existing safety systems, good manufacturing practices, good hygiene practices, food safety management systems and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) were discussed.

The training was organised as part of the EU funded project ‘Civic Society Organizations Supporting Free Trade with Europe’.
