In 2018 Christina May received funding from the European Agricultural Fund For Rural Development”.
The project was titled Machinery Investment for Export Growth.
The project was to purchase an automated wrapping machine for export growth at Silveroaks Farm, Waldron, East Sussex, TN21 ORS. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
The funding was instrumental in allowing Christina May to to purchase an automatic wrapping machine. This will allow Christina May to meet increased export demand for its products and be more competitive on pricing as well. This will enable Christina May to supply a wider range of markets that will allow sustained growth.
The investments have also provided a boost to the local rural economy through the creation of new jobs at Christina May and increased work flow from our local suppliers.
