Supporting Greek farmers and Greece’s agrifood sector

The “Thought for Food” programme is designed to support individual farmers living in various regions of Greece and active in the production of five flagship Greek agricultural product categories with significant comparative advantages: olives and olive oil, honey, fruits and vegetables, specific dairy products and aromatic plants. With financial assistance from private donors, individual farmers, livestock breeders and members of small cooperatives receive training in the production, standardisation and promotion of their produce.

To implement this programme, Bodossaki Foundation has joined forces with the American Farm School of Thessaloniki (AFS) and the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas  (CERTH).

So far, the programme has supported 144 individual farmers in various regions (Patras, Kalamata, Tripolis, Crete, Kavala, Chalkidiki and elsewhere), providing them with the tools that will enable them to remain locally based and develop their business.
