Contract Farming Programme: the tool for agricultural growth
Contract farming emerges as a dynamic lever for agricultural growth in our country. The Contract Farming Programme run by Piraeus Bank contributes significantly to the expansion of this operating mechanism and acts as a key catalyst for modernizing and improving the competitiveness of the agricultural sector.
The Programme adapts to the needs and utilizes the capabilities of all stakeholders in the agricultural sector. In this context, it provides the necessary working capital, to the producers, the processors and the marketing enterprises of agricultural products, thereby improves production efficiency and supports the extraversion of Greek agriculture.
The Program has already put its imprint on our country's agricultural economy.
- More than 22,000 farmers across the country have joined the Programme.
- Enterprises and agricultural cooperatives which participate in the Programme account for more than 250.
- These businesses are contributing to the Greek economy, by exporting €1,5 billion in agricultural products to 75 countries around the world.
- Credit lines to both producers and businesses to date exceed €700 million.
The exceptional quality of services that we provide remains unchanged, along with the benefits it brings to producers, agribusinesses and ultimately consumers.
