Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
The programme is designed to help local small producers access the market, the marketing of their products, and improving the employment situation of the town. During the use of the products, produced and processed in public
and social catering, by reducing material costs, the limited liability companies can achieve new development, thereby increasing the quality of services.
In order to enter the market successfully, the products are marketed via direct communication about local products in the local media, and brochures for 2000 households in order to facilitate market access. We also plan to use special packaging applicable only to products manufactured in Szécsény, thus contributing to the wider marketing of products and of Szécsény tourist attractions.
The shop selling local products will be operated by Szécsény General Education Nonprofit Ltd., which is owned by the municipality.
In addition to the food products, the local folk artists can also sell their products, the expansion of which is planned in 2014, with tourism-related programmes such as tastings, wine and spirits competitions, and organizing cooking competitions.
The expected revenues will be used by the local government for public and social catering and paying social assistance.
