Agri-food rapid response centres

About Project

Rapid response centers for producers in times of war are designed to help producers and other businesses in case of production problems.
The main purpose of these centers is to provide a quick response to cases of reduced manufacturing productivity, loss of goods, disruption of supplies, and other problems.
Rapid response centers help producers reduce the risks associated with the war and conflict and ensure uninterrupted production and supply of goods. They can also help to preserve jobs and support the country’s economy in times of war.
