Setting up a slaughterhouse on-site helped the beneficiary and other nearby organic lamb breeders to increase their profitability through direct marketing.
Projects & Practice
A well-established food processor used investment support from the Estonian RDP to expand the range of baby food products it offers and thus maintain its dynamic growth.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
An investment project for the modernisation and automation of a frozen fruits processing plant in order to minimise production losses.
Modernisation of a cannery with new machinery leading to improved competitiveness and a stronger local short supply chain.
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.
