Short description of the ‘Good Practice’: The Podkarpackie Agricultural Advisory Centre (PODR) in Boguchwala is a state-owned unit aimed at providing comprehensive assistance to farmers in order to increase farm income and non-agricultural activities, and to improve the living conditions of rural families. In 2020, PODR created a website where food producers, rural housewives’ clubs, animal breeders and local craftsmen could post their offers for free, and the inhabitants of Podkarpackie region could buy directly from local producers. The Covid-19 pandemic was an additional impulse to create the E-bazaar.

The website is clear and easy to use. It is divided into product categories, e.g. potatoes, fruit or honey. After selecting the product, the price and contact to the manufacturer is displayed with different delivery options: shipment, transport or personal pick up of the goods. The platform has been created by PODR in partnership with Voivode of Podkarpackie Region, Podkarpackie Regional Government, Podkarpackie Chamber of Agriculture, Podkarpackie Chamber of Organic Agriculture Associations Network and local media. After successful 2020 year, continuous development of the platform is underway: the idea has been implemented in other provinces, and a mobile application for Android devices has been operating since January 2021. E-bazaar as an aditional feature related to the promotion of innovative farmers. If the entrepreneur / farmer has implemented an innovative product or service, or applied modern solutions in terms of organization, technology or marketing, there is also an option of presenting these solutions on the platform. So far 151 such innovations have been registered.
Advisoty Centre is conducting several trainings for farmers, including how to increase income. Direct sales is on of the method. And farmers get not only theoretical information but also practical when they see how the platform works.

Podkarpacki Ośrodek Doradztwa Rolniczego (PODR) w Boguchwale jest państwową jednostką, której celem jest udzielanie wszechstronnej pomocy rolnikom w celu zwiększenia dochodów z gospodarstwa rolnego i działalności pozarolniczych oraz działania mające na celu poprawę warunków życia rodzin wiejskich. W 2020 roku PODR stworzył stronę internetową, na której producenci żywności, koła gospodyń wiejskich, hodowcy zwierząt i lokalni rzemieślnicy mogą bezpłatnie umieszczać swoje oferty, a mieszkańcy Podkarpacia kupować wprost od lokalnych producentów. Dodatkowym impulsem do stworzenia E-bazarku była pandemia Covid-19.
E-bazarek ma ułatwić kontakt, umożliwić sprzedaż wysokiej jakości produktów lub usług bez udziału pośrednika, w dowolnym czasie i miejscu. Strona jest przejrzysta, łatwa w obsłudze. Ma podział na kategorie produktów np. ziemniaki, owoce, czy miód. Po wybraniu produktu wyskakuje cena oraz kontakt do producenta, samemu można wybrać, czy decydujemy się na wysyłkę, transport, czy może osobisty odbiór towaru.
Partnerami PODR w stworzeniu E-bazarku są m.in. Wojewoda Podkarpacki, Marszałek Województwa Podkarpackiego, Podkarpacka Izba Rolnicza, Związek Stowarzyszeń Podkarpacka Izba Rolnictwa Ekologicznego oraz lokalne media.
Rok 2020 został zakończony z sukcesem i prowadzone są ciągłe prace nad rozwojem: pomysł został wdrożony w innych województwach, a od stycznie 2021 funkcjonuje aplikacja mobilna na urządzenia z systemem Android.
