CAP funds were used by a family-owned dairy processing plant to modernise its production facilities and introduce a merchandise management software.
Projects & Practice
An EAFRD funded investment project to modernise a farm business and support the launch of a high-quality range of organic oils.
CAP support enabled three partners in a short supply chain to build local demand for their traditional product range through strategic business investments and a wide-ranging promotional campaign.
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
A company developed a new allergen free healthy snack and used RDP support to set up the commercial production process.
A company producing bread and pastry products used EAFRD support to expand its processing and storage capacity as well as its distribution network.
Transnational cooperation between a French and Portuguese LAG on the topic of urban-rural relations has resulted in mutual learning about new ways to improve the scope and effectiveness of short supply-chains for local food.
