The purpose of the project is the development of social entrepreneurship and the development of organic production and processing. Before the start of the season in 2013 the Pan-nutri invited 3 employees to work. Prior to this, education had been implemented in the field of organic production and processing. The aim is to offer the consumer local, organic food and develop a system of organic food producers from whom they bought market highs.

The overall objectives of the project are the development of new organic products, job creation, business growth, professional preparation of staff employment. The specific objectives are to prepare a training programme, attracting 10 participants from vulnerable target groups to attend the training on organic production, processing and finishing products for the market; and to produce at least 3 new food products that will be marketable and will increase consumer awareness of locally produced food.
