Media mentions

What do farmers say?

Our project has a positive impact on our farmers' operations.

João Valente
Monte Silveira Bio (Farmer)

What is most important is the visibility that [the programme] has given to this whole movement [of transitioning to sustainable and regenerative agriculture]. Knowing the base line, the backbone of EIT Food, this is the way to give voice to this movement and effectively have a transformation at a global level.

Denis Hickel
Hortas da Rainha (Farmer)

This project is very important for creating networks and bonds between producers. It was very interesting to see people here with the intention of starting something in agriculture, as well as people who already have their own projects.

 António Gomes
Biofrade (Farmer)

These sessions make perfect sense. They bring knowledge closer to those in the fields, in this case, the producers. Producers have the knowledge of their practice, but they need the scientific knowledge and discoveries that universities and researchers bring.
