Short supply chain success stories catalysed by COVID-19 crises in Spanish islands.
Projects & Practice
A cooperative in Spain implemented a quality certification programme for tomato crops, aiming to increase the added value of the product, while being committed to promote safe and sustainable production processes.
An EIP Operational Group was set up to strengthen the food chain and create short distribution channels for small and medium farms in the Madrid region.
A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
A pig farm used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding to improve the animals’ living conditions and the branding of their products.
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.
