Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Pilot Project — Establishing an Operational Programme: Structuring The Agri-food Sectors to Safeguard the Handing-on of Family Farms and the Sustainability of Local Agriculture
The overall purpose of this pilot project is twofold:
1) To assess the advantages that producer organisations (POs) offer farmers in EU agriculture (compared to producers that operate with contracts or individually), including if and how this cooperation helps
(i) strengthening producers’ position in the agri-food supply chain; and
(ii) improving the sustainability of farms that are owned by members of POs; and then
2) To examine how POs – in particular in the livestock (notably dairy, beef and pig meat) and plant protein sectors – can boost the overall sustainability of their members by establishing a sectoral intervention through operational programmes (mirroring the existing model of the fruit and vegetables sector and taking into account the possibilities introduced in the Commission proposal for a regulation establishing rules on support for strategic plans (Articles 59 to 63) and combining various measures in a sector-related logic.
Delivery will usually be at the contractor's location.
The contracting authority aims to establish a contract with a single contractor in order to conclude pilot project on establishing an operational programme: structuring the agri-food sectors to safeguard the handing-on of family farms and the sustainability of local agriculture.
