1. Definition of a P.I.F.(Region of Tuscany)
P.I.F.s, or Integrated Projects at Sector Levels, are those projects that unite the actors of a food or forest supply chain (farmers, processing and marketing companies) with the goal of overcome the main critical issues of the supply chain, of fostering reorganisation and consolidation processes, and of carrying out more balanced market relationships. In this case, the cereal supply chain related to spelt production is taken into account. Integrated projects at sector levels ensure - within the same project – deployment of a large number of Rural Development Plan (RDP) sub-measures, which range from those provided for in business investments to the specific ones designed for activities of promotion, technological innovation, and diversification of agricultural activities, for energy recovery too.
