Promotion of farm products: How to apply for support?
This page contains documents and other useful information to help professionals set up campaigns to promote and inform the public about farm products and production methods.
National authorities in EU countries pre-select campaigns for EU support. They publish calls for proposals and pass applications on to the European Commission for consideration.
The deadlines for submitting proposals to Member States are the same each year: 15 April and 30 September. Both dates are open for submission of proposals for campaigns running within the EU and in non-EU countries.
The rules of the scheme are laid down in EU legislation: Council Regulation 3/2008 sets out the framework, while Commission Regulation 501/2008 gives the detailed rules.
