Italian farmers join forces in new organics value chain.
Projects & Practice
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
A dairy company used RDP support to build a new wing on its factory in order to increase its production capacity. This investment strengthened the local supply chains and helps prevent the abandonment of the farming activity in the area.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
Installing an efficient irrigation system in a fig orchard helped to better manage water stress for the trees and increased the quality and volume of production.
