EIP Practice Abstract Format:
Short summary for practitioners in English on the (final or expected) outcomes (1000-1500 characters, word count – no spaces).This summary should be as interesting as possible for farmers/end-users, using a direct and easy understandable language and pointing out entrepreneurial elements which are particularly relevant for practitioners. Research oriented aspects which do not help the understanding of the practice itself should be avoided.
Short description of the ‘Good Practice’: Organised under European Commission financed programme “Support for delivery of milk and dairy products for schoolars”.
Final customers are students at Latvian schools, however, payments for deliveries are made by state. Upon agreement farmers deliver their produce to local schools themselves (it is very locally-driven programme in order to cut delivery distances to minimum).
Main results/outcomes of the activity (expected or final): farmers can directly deliver their produce to customers in schools, some kind of a lesson for farmers how to shorten supply chain and also for students that they can buy directly from farmers in future
Short summary for practitioners in native language on the (final or expected) outcomes (1000-1500 characters, word count – no spaces).
This summary should be as interesting as possible for farmers/end-users, using a direct and easy understandable language and pointing out entrepreneurial elements which are particularly relevant for practitioners. Research oriented aspects which do not help the understanding of the practice itself should be avoided.
Organizēts saskaņā ar Eiropas Komisijas finansēto programmu “Atbalsts piena un piena produktu piegādei skolēniem”.
Gala klienti ir Latvijas skolu audzēkņi, tomēr maksājumus par piegādēm veic valsts. Pēc vienošanās lauksaimnieki paši piegādā savu produkciju vietējām skolām (tā ir ļoti vietēja virzīta programma, lai samazinātu piegādes attālumus līdz minimumam).
|Pearls, Puzzles, Proposals?||Pearls: Customers do not engage with farmers directly . Puzzles: Pre-defined state prices are usually below market value Proposals: There is a potential to open this programme to other food groups. However, this model is very limited and more suited for selling excess produce.|
|What needs did the ‘good practice’ respond to?||Fresh food, directly from farmers. Farmfood for students.|
|Methodology Used:||Desk based.|
|Actors/Stakeholders involved. Who are key actors in the supply chain AND who are key enablers of the process?||Farmers, students, teachers. Public procurement|
|Is the good practice supported by an IT application? If yes please describe and collect the TRL||The good practice is supported by an online platform as a main feature.|
|Media attachment (e.g. video link) or other attachment describing/depicting the Good Pratice||
