From 1 October, the mineral water tax is set to increase from 10 GEL to 30 GEL for Borjomi, and from 6 GEL to 18 GEL for Nabeghlavi. The two companies have protested against the tax increase. However, the Minister of the Economy Giorgi Kvirikashvili has told TV3 that the tax increase is meagre, and does not aim to discriminate against the two companies.
A spokesman for Borjomi has stated that the tax increase will force the company to increase the prices on its products. In contrast, Nabeghlavi is not planning to increase prices on the local market at this stage, but describe the government’s measures as discriminatory.
