Description

Through working with the local breeders to increase the productivity in ovin production. The focus will be on increased meat production through training activities.The objective of the project is to aid the further development of the structure of the farmers’ organization to be an efficient body for organizing production and sales/marketing.The experience from building up strong farmers’ organisations in Norway will be exploited actively in the process of empowering the Romanian organisation. On an overall level, the objective is to empower the local farmer and enable them to market their products directly using their own organisation and avoiding the very expensive middlemen. Such an empowerment of the farmers leads to higher percentages of the income remaining with the local farmer and increases their control over their own situation.
