A cuniculture farm used CAP funds to set up a new energy efficient meat processing unit in order to add value to its final product and improve the farm’s position in the value chain.
Projects & Practice
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
A leading manufacturer of conserves and jams used RDP support to increase its winter water storage capacity for use during the summer dry months.
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.
