Production Management in Milk Industry
University of Rennes 1 – Georgian Technical University
Georgia has a long tradition of making cheese and other dairy products through milk and cheese transformation. Most of them are produced in a traditional way in different parts of the country for a very small number of consumers. In order to respond to the growing demand of the local people and export prospective, several companies are now proposing industrial products to the market. The dairy production industry requires skilled workers that are able to both manage a global workshop activity and to manage teams.
