Summary of Project

This project requires a partner to gain learning about charcuterie production methods and marketing and good practice from Italian or Spanish producers. 

This was initially an Ayrshire LAG concept however due to unforeseen circumstances they have now had to drop their interest in the proposal. However, the concept remains sound and other LAG’s may wish to explore the feasibility of progressing this as a cooperation project with Italian or Spanish counterparts. The Scottish Rural Network can facilitate introductions if required, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
