After two years organising visits, the COOPID project has released the last two videos (of a pack of eleven) presenting successful agri-food organisations in the EU #bioeconomy, showing how these organisations work and the key areas to understand to benefit from their knowledge. The organisations were selected for their business models’ sustainability, efficiency and circularity.
These videos are meant mainly for primary producers, researchers, policymakers, industry…etc interested in understanding better what circular business models are, how they work, what type of services/products deliver and how they can use them in their own businesses or practices.

- Oleícola El Tejar (Spain). Highlighted for the integral use of the olive grove by-products
