A family farm used support from multiple Rural Development Programme (RDP) measures to ensure the farm’s viability and diversify towards a quality focused and profit-oriented business.
Projects & Practice
RDP support enabled a home-based business that sells quality vegetarian food products to increase its production capacity and reach out to an international market.
A fruit and vegetables producing cooperative used RDP support to expand its cold storage capacity in order to better respond to market trends.
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
