In Runway for organic in South-Eastern Finland -project we are developing and activating networks in organic farming sector in South-East area.

In the recent years, organic production and consumption have grown steadily in Finland. South-Eastern Finland is one of the strongest organic cultivation areas in Finland, but there is still need for more developing and promoting activities.

The aim of the project is to create a development plan for organic farmers and promoters in order to enhance organic farming, further processing and consumption of organic products. Facilitating and activating different networks is an important part of the project.

South-Eastern Finland is known for solid organic grain production. The aim is to strengthen the know-how, and highlight the possibilities in organic seed production as well.
