Reinforcing supply chains in Lombardy for a sustainable agricultural sector
The EAFRD Credit Fund supported agri-food companies in Lombardy, Italy, to increase value added along the entire food production chain. Thanks to the support of this EAFRD financial instrument, two cooperatives could enhance their production capacity and expand their business, to the benefit of their members. Comazoo a cooperative producing animal feed, was able to finance two new production lines for GMO-free and organic feed. Latteria Sociale Valtellina, a cooperative of over 100 members producing cow milk, could renovate its main production hall, purchase new machines for pasteurising and bottling milk and build a new laboratory, ultimately saving water and energy.
