Since 2008, Hilfswerk International enables support, promotion and economic development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) processing fruit and vegetables, dried fruit, nuts and honey within the framework of the project series named CANDY (Central Asian Nuts, Dried Fruit and HoneY processing SMEs). After three successful projects (CANDY I-III, 2008-2015), the project CANDY IV (2017-2019) focused on specialized and comprehensive services for export-oriented SMEs. Since the beginning of 2020, we continue with the project CANDY V.
