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 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.
Setting up a slaughterhouse on-site helped the beneficiary and other nearby organic lamb breeders to increase their profitability through direct marketing.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
A cooperative focused on quality cheese production, used Rural Development Programme support to expand its facilities and thus ensure the continuous growth of its business.
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 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.
