Projects & Practice
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A winemaking cooperative in France’s Jura region used EAFRD funding to develop a bio-purification system for managing waste in an environmentally sustainable way.
A Romanian farm specialised in crop production invested in modernisation activities to expand its production capacity. As a result, it created job opportunities for the local Roma community.
Seven LAGs in the Lombardy region cooperated to create the 'Fair trade economic district', which is an innovative development model to promote economic and cultural growth in rural areas.
EAFRD supported the successful development of a local brand in a mountainous area in Lower Silesia, Poland. It enabled the local population to develop its unique cultural diversity into a successful, integrated touristic product.
A French region developed its own brand that capitalises on its culinary tradition, as well as the diversity and quality of its local produce.
