La Familia, originally focussed on flour production in Georgia, has recently launched a new pasta product ‘which is far superior to similar products on the market,’ the company claims.
The company has plans to further expand its production and add prime quality products.
“Our new product pasta is already for sale. Customers are already familiar with our flour and appreciate the quality of the product. We are sure that La Familia pasta will enjoy the same success because its quality is really distinguished and it stands far superior to similar products on the market. That is why our positioning is that we have real pasta and not maccaroni. We offer our customers a variety of pasta, spaghetti and, most importantly, a novelty- pasta for children,” La Familia Deputy General Manager Giorgi Gurgenashvili told Golden Brand.
In the next two months the company will also introduce premium-quality Georgian traditional black tea on the market.
“To emphasize the high quality of the product and to gain the trust of customers, the tea packaging contains only hand-picked tea, only high quality leaves. La Familia tea was created for both the local market and exports.The project includes a bio direction as well,” Gurgenashvili said.
The company plans to produce flour specifically for pizza, khachapuri, croissant, khinkali and other products.
The company also plans to produce premium quality cereals: buckwheat, rice, sugar (brown among them, etc.) as well as Georgian, natural honey and spices.
La Familia, which has been operating on the Georgian market since 2016 started with just two categories of flour- baking and a prime-quality flour.
Currently, the brand is represented by five types of flour – extra, semolina, whole wheat flour, premium flour and baking flour, eight types of pasta and two types of tea.
Gurgenashvili states that the price for the products is affordable ‘because La Familia is for every family!’
The company products are available around the country in all network and non-network markets, while exports are made to both Europe and Asia.
