On Saturday, June 6th, APRC has organized agriculture site visit to FRIXX, potato chips producing enterprise, and Lisi Lake Greenhouse producing organic products.
FRIXX is the first world class potato chips produced in Georgia. It offers consumers three flavors of chips and targets not only Georgia, but its neighboring countries as well. The founder and director of FRIXX, Jean-Frederic Paulsen and technical director Wlodzimierz Lepczynski personally hosted ISET students. During the site visit students had an opportunity to see the factory infrastructure, ask questions about the production process and try Georgian chips. Students were especially curious about the potato supply chain, distribution markets for chips, marketing and branding.
