The cooperative is located in Bolnisi Municipality’s village of Disveli, Kvemo Kartli region. Disveli is a settlement comprised of ecomigrants from Zemo Adjara, who were displaced due to natural hazards. Small enterprise, which is in line with modern standards, will strengthen the socio-economic conditions of local women as well as support rural development.

Building the cheese cooperative in Disveli is the result of a partnership between CENN and Rural Economic Development Program (RED) for the Southern Regions of Georgia – a joint Danish-Swiss project that aims to contribute to the economic growth of the agriculture sector and reduction of poverty in Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kvemo Kartli regions.
