Rural Development Programme investment support has boosted the productivity and competitiveness of a family dairy business and helped to safeguard more than 60 jobs.
Projects & Practice
Female entrepreneurs used RDP investment support to increase the production capacity of their juniper syrup-producing business.
A livestock farmer received training and undertook a consultation to find out how to improve animal welfare on his farm.
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.
