Agro Tech Services

Platform for the promotion of local businesses and products 

It is a digital platform that will support local businesses in the agri-food sector and provide users with a structured list of local businesses, thus creating an online community focused on the business reality of the Municipality and boosting the promotion and extroversion of local agri-food businesses.

At the same time, it will enable activities such as exhibitions and bazaars that are in progress or will be planned in the future to turn digital.

Main features:

  • Online ordering of products (e-shop)
  • Information service
  • Creating a basket – adding products to a customer wish list

Online promotion of products

The platform will provide a description of the agricultural products of the local producers available for sale and support decentralized operation of both retail and wholesale stores. Each producer/farmer will be able to access their own space through which they will be able to promote and market their products or promote content (eg recipes, sweets, packaging). The Platform should be interconnected with online payment systems in the future, but initially, it will support only orders.

Information and content management service

It includes information on agriculture/production news of the region, subsidies, new crops, best production practices, legal framework, etc. In addition, in this section, each producer will be able to publish their own methods by creating a mini site/blog that they will be able to manage along with the products available on the e-shop.
