A company developed a new allergen free healthy snack and used RDP support to set up the commercial production process.
The cooperative ‘Dobrina’ used LEADER support for awareness raising and capacity building activities in order to promote locally produced high quality fresh food to public schools and attract more producers.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
A group of farmers in Latvia used EAFRD support to set up a mobile slaughterhouse for common use. The investment enabled farmers to respond to the increasing demand for certified slaughterhouse services at a competitive price.
