SIA - “Positive Foods”

RDP support enabled a home-based business that sells quality vegetarian food products to increase its production capacity and reach out to an international market.

Project summary: 

Ilva Kavicka is a home-based producer of quality vegetarian food products. After purchasing initial equipment at her own cost to set up her business, she applied for RDP support in order to acquire additional equipment and plant her own blackcurrant crop. The new investment aimed to help Ilva scale up production and eventually reach the international market.

Project results: 

1 full-time job created.

The investment increased the volume of production, which in 2018 exceeded one tonne of food products, much of which was sold via cooperation partnerships with companies such as Rimi Klētis, Stockmann, svaigi.lv, etc.

Work has begun to establish a business unit that will further increase production, create another job and export to the international market from 2020 onwards.
