As one of Adjara Group Holding’s three directions, Udabno manages one of the biggest agricultural developments in Georgia’s eastern region of Kakheti. The almond orchard, berry farms, vineyard with endemic grape varieties, as well as the dairy farm, all of which are part of the agricultural direction of the holding, are setting new standards in the industry.
By developing up to 8,000 hectares of land in Kakheti, Udabno is playing a pivotal role in fighting desertification, while bringing biodiversity in the region. Importantly, with more than 25 kilometers of water pipes already laid down, as well as the efficient, automated irrigation systems, Udabno has been establishing modern, efficient and sustainable agricultural practices in Georgia.
Employing local populations and creating a gender-balanced work environment is highly prioritized in the company’s agricultural work. Considering that some portion of the region’s inhabitants are ethnic and religious minorities, the Udabno team makes sure that work opportunities are created for people of diverse backgrounds.
Udabno is a member of the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC), Georgia’s Almond & Walnut Producer Association, and Georgian Farmers’ Association. The company also consults with the Spanish firm Nogaltec, that has vast knowledge and experience in almond cultivation and exploitation. Moreover, Udabno partners with the Agricultural and Rural Development Agency and is a recipient of a number of grants from Georgia’s Agricultural Ministry as well as Enterprise Georgia.
