The Galician Food Cluster (CLUSAGA) is a key tool for improving the competitiveness of enterprises. The weaknesses of the industry and the threats it faces, due to the changes in the environment, make it necessary to establish a joint action of the various agents in order to better face the necessary actions under the leadership of CLUSAGA as a binding agent of the Galician food industry.
Thus, by developing and applying a vision, grouping the resources and skills of the main agents of the value chain of food and beverages, working more effectively on a common goal, according to a strategic plan, and establishing the joint bases, taking advantage of the potential of the sector, the Galician Food Cluster can achieve a significant growth in a sustainable way.
The Strategic Plan 2016-2020 includes five strategic objectives including: developing a culture of innovation and promoting the dissemination and application of knowledge; promoting the generation of added value through new products and /or processes and safety and quality food; improving productivity and sustainability and move towards the factory of the future; strengthening market positioning; internationalization and adaptation to consumer trends and lastly, enhancing the dynamics of cooperation and networking among the partners of the cluster, and consolidation of the structure and projection of the CLUSAGA.
These objectives will be achieved through the implementation of the Strategic Plan, developing measures and planned actions, aligned with sectoral strategies at regional, national and European level, creating a carry-over effect on the different action areas of the Galician food industry.
