Build and operate the integrated fruit production facility with inputs such as land, CAPEX for production machinery, labor, and seeds and fertilizers. The targeted export markets include export to the European Union (EU), Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA), European Free Trade Association (EFTA), and the Russian Federation supported by long-term contracts. Foreign experts should help in the establishment of cooperatives, in terms of the necessary knowledge and experience of organizing into cooperatives small and fragmented producers who lack negotiating power and respect the "3K" principle (quality, quantity, and continuity), which are needed to collect fruits from small producers in distribution centers. Such centers should have equipment for cooling and calibration with advanced technology. Production yields can be increased thought irrigation systems, and greenhouses add to the resistance and secureness of the crops in different weather conditions.
Support sustainable farming, promote high-value markets, reduce undernourishment, and ensure food security.
