A guide on support opportunities for organic producers in Europe
This publication is an informative document intended for organic farmers, processors and retailers.

In the light of the growing demand for organic products and taking into account the important recent changes in the CAP, the European Commission within the framework of... the 2014’s Action Plan for the future of the Organic Production in the European Union is seeking to increase awareness among farmers and rural actors on the available measures in favour of organic farming in relevant instruments foreseen in the new Common Agricultural Policy and Common Fisheries Policy.
