PROVE originated as an inter-territorial co-operation Project between eight Local Action Groups located around Portugal to continue the experience and methodology developed as part of the IC EQUAL inititiative which is intended to resolve issues related to the marketing of local products and to take advantage of the proximity of producers and consumers in peri-urban areas.

The Prove Projectaims at promoting new forms of short marketing chains between small producers and consumers. Prove, thereby, is on one hand helping producers to sell their produce, directly and immediately, obtaining a fair price for their work. On the other hand, consumers receive quality products and have direct contact with producers.
