Setting up a slaughterhouse on-site helped the beneficiary and other nearby organic lamb breeders to increase their profitability through direct marketing.
Projects & Practice
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
An ambitious young farmer used RDP support to create a new niche product and a touristic attraction out of his produce of mushrooms that were not suitable for the market.
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.
