Italian farmers join forces in new organics value chain.
Projects & Practice
A producer of organic arable crops used investment support from the Hungarian Rural Development Programme (RDP) to build an innovative storage facility and increase the competitiveness of his farm.
Rural Development Programme investment support has boosted the productivity and competitiveness of a family dairy business and helped to safeguard more than 60 jobs.
A cooperative in Spain implemented a quality certification programme for tomato crops, aiming to increase the added value of the product, while being committed to promote safe and sustainable production processes.
A family business focused on Sorghum cultivation used EAFRD support to set up their own mill and now supply high quality, gluten free Sorghum flour to the Hungarian market.
Female entrepreneurs used RDP investment support to increase the production capacity of their juniper syrup-producing business.
A young farmer received RDP support to build stone wall terraces, helping him to improve the farm’s productivity, while protecting its soil from erosion.
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.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
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.
