KERKI’s team came up with the idea of starting building a dried fruit enterprise during the Covid pandemic, in August 2020. The main aspiration of the team was to produce Georgian natural, healthy and useful products. Highland Ajara, an eco friendly environment, the village Dzentsmani has been chosen as the location of the enterprise. Since March 2021, the enterprise has already been working in test mode. From December 2021, a new Georgian dried fruit brand KERKI has appeared on the market.
K E R K I produces 5 types of products: dried fruits, churchkhela (Georgian traditional famous candle shaped candy), fruit leather, candied fruit and nuts.
KERKI Enterprise created the first attempt and traditionally processed, 100% natural, persimmon, apple and tangerine dried fruits threaded onto strings and have packed in excellent quality materials to meet the premium food safety standards.
The enterprise is equipped with high-standard machinery, storage and refrigeration spaces, and production areas.
Kerki offers customers so-called "Family" and stand-up resemble pouch packaging, which ensures maximum preservation of the storage conditions and taste qualities of the products.
It is important to note, ISO22000 food safety management standard has been implemented in the enterprise.
K E R K I is an traditional Georgian name for berries dried under the sun. This word is still used in several regions of Georgia.
While working on the idea of producing a Georgian product, the Georgian unique scripts became the source of inspiration for our logo and character.
