MDI evaluated the Local Food Programme

TK-Eval MDI and evaluated the Local Food Programme for the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The evaluation focused on execution, results and preliminary effects on the Local Food sector. The evaluation is based on documentary analysis, electronic survey, interviews and workshops. Consumer behavior and delivery channels have been changing recently. Consumers are more and more interested in food and its origin and direct selling channels are increasingly popular. The Local Food Programme has had an impact in developing the local food theme and creating partnerships. Diversification of the production and raising the level of processing are key objectives for the Programme in the future. The evaluation was due in November 2018.
