In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
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 young female farmer used RDP support to set up a traditional backing oven and start selling organic bread in the local area.
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.
