ORHI is a European POCTEFA project supported by French and Spanish cross-border territory organisations.


The ORHI project aims to contribute to the evolution of the food sector within POCTEFA territory towards a Circular Economy by promoting inter-company synergies, identifying Innovative Solutions, and supporting their development in the territory. ORHI focuses on the “organic matter” and “plastic” resources of the food value chain. The project name ORHI (a mountain peak at the French-Spanish border) reflects its cross-border challenge.


Within the framework of the Interreg V-A Spain-France-Andorra Program (POCTEFA 2014-2020), the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) co-financed 65% of the project. The objective of POCTEFA is to strengthen the economic and social integration of the Spain-France-Andorra cross-border area. Its assistance is focused on the development of cross-border economic, social and environmental activities through joint strategies that promote the sustainable development of the territory.
