Racha Cheesemakers to Learn How to Make Caucasus Cheese

Between February 7-10, 2011, CBDN Gyumri office hosted a cross-learning visit for cheesemakers from Racha. The trip was organised as part of the “Rural Development in the Racha-Lechkhumi Region, Georgia” project of the Swiss Development Cooperation and the CARE International.

During the programme, the cheesemakers visited local production facilities and learned the secrets of Caucasus Cheese. The trip was an excellent opportunity for the local and visiting cheesemakers to share and exchange experience as well as discuss ways to enhance market opportunities and find cost-effective approaches to shared needs.

As a token of their gratitude the visiting cheesemakers invited CBDN and local producers to continue cross-learning in Racha.
