Sufficient food supplies and uninterrupted supply of the population is mandatory under any restrictions, including quarantine, Georgia’s Minister of Agriculture Levan Davitashvili says.

According to the Minister, the whole chain should be controlled by the state like in all countries where a state of emergency is declared over coronavirus.

“A coordination headquarters has been operating in Georgia from the first day of the state of emergency, whose representatives are in constant contact with business, including on issues such as food stock management, logistics, and transportation, ” the Minister notes.

In the Minister’s words,  when the country has quarantine, the work of importers and distributors is significantly complicated.

“Everyone understands that quarantine was introduced in a bid to maximally prevent  the spread  of infection. In this situation, the proper functioning of the food supply chain, which consists not only of shops, but also of many other elements, becomes especially urgent as we deal with  the whole infrastructure which is imperceptible from the side, ”the Minister explains.

Davitashvili  says that in the closed region of Kvemo Kartli, six special points have already been launched  to provide the locals with everything necessary as well as  deliver  the harvest of local farmers to the capital.
