Russia Targets Georgian Mineral Waters
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 18 Apr.'06 / 16:47

The Russian consumer protection agency has impounded over 9,000 bottles of the "Nabeghlavi" Georgian mineral water in the Moscow region, Georgian and Russian news agencies reported on April 18.

The move comes three days after the Russian consumer protection agency announced that it has found “a large number of falsified and low quality” Georgian mineral water “Borjomi” on the Russian markets.

Despite this announcement about the low quality of Georgian mineral waters, the Russian consumer protection agency has not yet banned the import of these products.

Georgia exported a total of 94 800 tones of mineral waters, including Borjomi and Nabeghlavi, to Russia worth of USD 23,6 million in 2005 which is USD 10 million more than in 2004.

80% of Georgia's most prominent mineral water Borjomi is exported abroad – more than half of this amount to Russia, while 40% goes to 27 other countries around the world, according to the Georgian Glass & Mineral Waters Company, which produces Borjomi.

Russia banned the import of Georgian wine on March 27, claiming that they were contaminated with pesticides.
