How Much Imeretian Khachapuri You Can Buy For One Hour of Work?

The FINANCIAL -- This week, ISET’s Khacahpuri Index team checked whether average hourly wages in different Georgian locations cover the cost of one standard portion of Imeretian khachapuri.

Using the cost of khachapuri ingredients in four major Georgian cities (Tbilisi, Telavi, Kutaisi and Batumi) and the latest available data for average monthly wages in the corresponding regions, we calculated that one hour of work would not always suffice to treat you to a portion of delicious Imeretian khachapuri. As we show below, one hour of work can buy you more than one Khachapuri portion in Tbilisi. If you happen to live in Georgia’s periphery, the same one hour of work will buy you only slightly more than half a portion, despite (somewhat) lower prices for khachapuri ingredients.
