The global and Georgian experience in the hazelnut, almond and walnut business to be presented in Ukraine

EastFruit invites all nut growers of Ukraine to follow an interesting presentation at the 17th International Conference “Fruits and Vegetables of Ukraine 2021” on December 2-3, 2021 in Kyiv. The presentation is titled “Economically viable investments in the nut business of Ukraine: walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds based on the long-term experience of Georgia. Global Nut Trends”. It will be presented by an expert with extensive experience in the international nut business – Kateryna Poberezhna.

Kateryna and her husband have established a super-intensive almond orchard in Georgia, which is the first of its kind in the region. In addition, she heads the California-based company Super Almond, which provides technological support for modern nut, including almond, orchards with both Super High Density (SHD) and traditional systems around the world. They engage the best American consultants in these projects – the United States is almost a monopoly on the global market for almonds and the world’s largest exporter of walnuts and pistachios.

The experience of the nut business of Kateryna Poberezhna is not limited to the technologies of growing and processing almonds – she is an international consultant to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), heads the Georgian division of the EastFruit platform and has been supervising professional monitoring of the global market for all types of nuts, primarily walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios for several years. Therefore, she has access to unique information and at many international conferences she talks about global trends and the most important elements for making a successful investment in the nut business.

Kateryna thoroughly knows the global market of hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds, thanks to her visits to orchards in Georgia and other countries. Since Kateryna was born and raised in Ukraine, but now lives in Georgia, she closely monitors the markets of both countries. Her presentation will be based on global trends and experience of Georgia, but in the context of Ukraine, which Kateryna is well aware of. In addition to Ukraine and Georgia, she closely monitors the nut markets of other countries that are part of the EastFruit project: Moldova, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. A lot of interesting things are noted there too!

It will be very useful for nut growers of Ukraine to hear Kateryna’s presentation and get to know her personally. You can register for participation in the conference at this link.
