Success of produced products on the market can be assessed with its sales figures (indicator). Sales growth is impossible, if users do not have information about the company's products (brands) on their characteristics and advantages. The proper management of brand is very important for modern companies. Brand is presented as a complex system of interconnected elements. It is very important for our country, Georgian products to be presented not only in the domestic market, but also to increase its exports. Significant place in the country's total export is held by Georgian wine, mineral water, alcoholic beverages, carbonated soft (nonalcoholic) drinks and etc… (National Statistics Office of Georgia, 2016). It should be noted that branding was applied in Georgia in certain form in the past as well.

Based on the results of the research to determine weaknesses which prevent Georgian brands from success.
