Hernádszentandrás with 420 inhabitants in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County has developed an organic farming system. Over the past 9 years, the BioSzentandrás brand has been a cross-regional brand, with a quality product line, feelings and an attitude, while creating a growing and responsible community day by day.
They grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, which make from syrups, jams, dried fruits, make unique handicraft products, and envolves services based on them. As a business of basis for ecotourism and awareness, I want to strengthen our system in the future to catalyzing the establishment and networking of the social entrepreneurship sector in Hungary.
The economic model is run by a municipal nonprofit ltd and a social cooperative, this providing a livelihood for disadvantaged members of the local community.
