The leader of the Greens Party Gia Gachechiladze stated that 80% of products consumed by Georgians are imported. According to him the quality of these imported products is very low and therefore dangerous to the nation's health. The markets are monopolized and high ranking officials are covering this business of purchasing low quality and cheap products. According to him the control system in the country is very poor. There are no facilities available in the country to control genetically modified products' entry into the country thinks expert in this field Giorgi Magradze. He added that the situation in the country is dangerous and it should be resolved as soon as possible.
