Project summary: 

A family business engaged in the production of sorghum seeds and sorghum cultivation, used support from the EAFRD to establish a mill using traditional millstone grinding technology. 
The mill received its operating license in April 2021, and it produces a uniform, stable, high-content, gluten and toxin-free product for the Hungarian market.

Project results: 

The mill received its operating license in April 2021.
The mill does not rely on other producers for raw material; they manage the entire life cycle of the product. The beneficiary’s father’s farm produces high-quality sorghum, which they consider the most appropriate for the mill. This guarantees a standard, high quality of flour for human consumption.
The development created three new jobs.
Due to the high interest by Hungarian companies (distributors, bakers, pasta and biscuit industries) in sorghum flour, in 2021, the area sown with sorghum will be three times larger than last year.
