Brand new manufacturing and packaging procedures were developed in order to produce healthy nutritional products for children from fruit and vegetables.
Projects & Practice
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.
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
Acquisition of a wood chipper that produces chips for cogeneration more efficiently, thus reducing the cost of tools and consumables per unit of finished product.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
Modernisation of a cannery with new machinery leading to improved competitiveness and a stronger local short supply chain.
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
An integrated municipal strategy to build a sustainable development model for the local economy based on the agri-food identity of the territory.
Expanding a water reservoir and installing a solar farm to reduce the energy costs of irrigation.
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.
