We are developing and activating networks in the organic farming sector in South-Eastern Finland!

In the recent years, organic production and consumption have grown steadily in Finland. Demand for organic products is constantly higher than supply.

South-Eastern Finland is one of the strongest organic cultivation areas in Finland, but there is still need for more development and promotion.

We want to enhance the organic farming, further processing and the consumption of organic products in the area. The aim of the project is to create a development plan for organic production in South-Eastern Finland. Facilitating and activating different networks is an important part of our 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.
