Ancillary Businesses

Overview​

IAZ has the ambition to implement a "best in class" Greenhouse Cluster Development, through the establishment, operations and maintenance of the 220 ha facility occupied by the IAZ, ancillary business, a Training Centre and up to 93 farmers and greenhouse investors. ​

As an integral part of the overall Project, IAZ intends to function as a one window – service provider for the tenants of the IAZ, through the participation of ancillary businesses, including Utilities, logistics providers, agri-business suppliers, banks or retailers.​

 

Proposed Commercial Structure

 

The ancillary business providers operating within the IAZ are expected to be separate, self-sustaining commercial entities. A dedicated space has been earmarked in close proximity to the central access to the IAZ, and other service facilities. The operators may purchase or lease dedicated plots from IAZ.​

Tenure Arrangements​


The Project will be delivered under appropriate tenure and access arrangements applicable to both the Development Phase and the Operating Phase. A dedicated plot has been earmarked for the operations of the ancillary services. 

Handover requirements​


IAZ will complete the external infrastructure and preparation of the plots offered under this EOI on ongoing basis, plot-by-plot as assigned in 2 phases in the preliminary business plan, starting from the Spring 2022, to 2024. ​

The ancillary service providers being contracted as a successful respondent following the conclusion of the RFP stage will be expected to complete the provision of their respective services in parallel with the plot development as phased by the IAZ.​

Commercial Development Opportunity

Beyond the privileged access to 93 farming and greenhouse businesses operating at the fully developed stage within the IAZ, the ancillary service providers have the opportunity to extend their services provision to the farming diaspora in the Imereti region. ​
