Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014 -2020

Evaluation of the Sustainable Supply Chains Initiative, f3 and Ecostudio



Evaluation of a project funded under the Supply Chain Efficiencies scheme of the Wales Rural Development Plan 2007-2013.

The pilot phase of the SSC programme has concentrated activities on five projects in South East Wales. The objectives of the programme have been focused on increasing the confidence and capacity of food and drink micro-enterprises, and their supply chain partners, in understanding and giving practical outlet to the principles of sustainable development. The five projects were, selected on the basis of their ability to address key market failures affecting microenterprises operating within the Welsh Food and Drink supply chain. The projects included a dairy cooperative, a community food cooperative, a distribution / micro-enterprise hub, Welsh wine producers and a market garden social enterprise.
