Food and Agriculture SME Support Initiative (FASSI)

Since 2017, Georgian Farmers’ Association has been implementing an EU funded project, Food and Agriculture SME Support Initiative (FASSI). The project aims to strengthen the Business Support Organisations (BSO) working in the food and agriculture sector. As a result, the BSOs are able to provide adequate and effective support to their small and medium-sized enterprise members in working towards complying with the new regulations, accessing local and international markets, and improving business relationships within and outside of the country. The project also aims to involve BSOs in dialogues with the public and private sectors in regards to DCFTA and to increase their role in developing recommendations for the strategy of the agriculture sector.
