Producers Direct delivers services by farmers, for farmers through a global network of Centres of Excellence. Based at Producer Organisations and acting as farmer-run businesses, these Centres of Excellence are one stop shops for farmer services and consist of living, learning classrooms where innovations can be tested, developed and shared with other farmers.
Producer Organisations also work closely with local farming, youth and women’s groups, guaranteeing each Centre of Excellence responds to local needs – including finding constructive ways to engage with the young people vital to the future of rural communities.
