Projects & Practice
An investment project for the modernisation and automation of a frozen fruits processing plant in order to minimise production losses.
Setting up an innovative lavender distillery in response to increasing market demands for high quality, niche products.
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.
Transnational cooperation between a French and Portuguese LAG on the topic of urban-rural relations has resulted in mutual learning about new ways to improve the scope and effectiveness of short supply-chains for local food.
