A wide variety of fruit grows in abundance around the Meghri, a town in southern Armenia. But little is exported, because there’s been no money to modernize the local cannery. That is going to change thanks to special investment funds.
In winter the small town of Meghri can often be difficult to reach. From the local canning factory you have to travel 400 kilometers through the mountains to reach the capital Yerevan. That makes everything expensive, except for the fruit, which grows here in abundance. To remain competitive, the cannery urgently needed to modernize.
