Project PROVE, ADREPES

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

ADREPES - Associação de Desenvolvimento Regional da Península de Setúbal aims to promote the integrated development of Setúbal Penin-sula, in Portugal. Project Prove started in 2004 as a result of local farmers leaving agriculture, mainly because they were facing difficulties in sel-ling and consumers seeking to have products with quality and to know their producers. By engaging local stakeholders (municipalities, farmers, universities and companies), Prove’s is being disseminated in Portugal since 2009. Its main goals are: i) to promote new forms of short marke-ting chains between small producers and consumers: helping produ-cers sell their produce, directly and immediately obtaining a fair price for their work; ii) consumers receive quality products and have direct contact with producers (consumers more responsible with their com-munity and engaged with local producers).
