Rural Development Programme investment support has boosted the productivity and competitiveness of a family dairy business and helped to safeguard more than 60 jobs.
Projects & Practice
A family business focused on Sorghum cultivation used EAFRD support to set up their own mill and now supply high quality, gluten free Sorghum flour to the Hungarian market.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
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.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
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.
