Project Lifetime: 1st of September 2022 until 30 of September 2025

Aims and Objectives:

The AGROVILA project focuses on one of the crucial aspects of family farming, which is access to the market at fair prices. Over the last few decades, food retail has undergone major changes, especially with Portugal's entry into the (then) European Community and the entry of large distribution companies, to the clear detriment of small producers. On the other hand, consumers are starting to look more for local and seasonal produce, not least because of food quality issues, but also because of environmental and social concerns.

The AGROVILA project aims to bring these players closer together by creating short circuit consumer communities with the support of a national digital platform accessible to all local producers and all consumers, which makes it possible to promote and shorten short circuits with benefits for both parties.
