Discription:

AgroSmartcoop is a project approved within the framework of the Interreg –SUDOE Program. The AgroSMARTcoop will focus on the integration, competitiveness and sustainable economic growth of agro-food cooperatives and the enterprises associated with them. The project’s intended goals include the promotion of organizational innovation among these cooperatives, the provision of support for the ‘smart marketing’ of their outputs, notably by enhancing the quality and emphasizing the local characteristics of their products; and the promotion of alliances and collaborative projects that can make cooperativism more advantageous to all those involved.

This project involves the following partners: Portugal’s Northern Region Polyvalent Cooperative Union (UniNorte), the Galician Association of Agrarian Cooperatives (AGACA), the Extramadura Centre for Scientific and Technological Research (CICYTEX), the Agrifood Cooperatives of Castille – La Mancha (CACLM), the Euskadi Federation of Agrifood Cooperatives (FCAE), the Association of European Regions for Origin-labelled Products (AREPO) and the Cooperative de France – Aquitaine (CDF).
