Projects & Practice
A farmer in a Less Favoured Area turned to organic agriculture and began growing ancient varieties of cereals. He has achieved sustainability through niche, quality production.
A farm employing people with special needs, set up a process line and an experimental kitchen where non-commercial agricultural produce can be turned into new products.
A modern hen farm producing eggs for human consumption, set up a new unit to process non commercial eggs and therefore increase its competitiveness.
A pilot programme in Scotland on Public Procurement led to new opportunities and markets for Scottish SMEs.
Producers in Scotland saw the opportunity to link together their activities to encourage greater visitor numbers to rural destinations by creating a network of artisan chocolatiers.
