Projects & Practice
An integrated municipal strategy to build a sustainable development model for the local economy based on the agri-food identity of the territory.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A company producing bread and pastry products used EAFRD support to expand its processing and storage capacity as well as its distribution network.
A young female farmer in Lithuania benefited from EAFRD business start-up support to establish a modern, profitable farm.
This Lithuanian LEADER project empowered the women of a small village to create a brand for their organic fruit and vegetables, and increase the income they generate by selling their home produce.
