Armenia offers highly fertile soil, clean water and a favorable climate to produce certain crops of excellent taste and high quality. Such produce have strong export potential due to a positive brand recognition of Armenian food products and beverages, especially in CIS countries. In June 2020, Riviera Capital CJSC acted as a consultant to the acquirer of a 9 hectare apricot, plum and apple orchard in Armenia’s Aragatsotn region. The management of the orchard is outsourced to EverGreen Agro Asset Management LLC, a firm specialized in the management of agricultural assets. The foreign direct investment of around USD 200,000, combined with Riviera Capital’s monitoring process and EverGreen LLC's technical expertise and operations management, will allow the business to increase the orchard's yields and profitability over the next few years.
