The goal of this project was to convey the true concept of CSR, which is often misunderstood by Armenian entrepreneurs.

The project SUCCESS aimed at improving agricultural activities in Armenia through strengthening the supply chain.


BSC conducted a series of training sessions addressed for companies and institutions in the public, private and non-governmental sectors. The training program aimed at presenting CSR principles, challenges and adoption procedures.

The project concept was that supply chain players could behave in a responsible way throughout their operational chains and thus contribute to the sustainable development of the sub sectors (the following three main sub sectors were targeted: honey, tomato and milk production).

As a follow up to the activities in CSR area, BSC implemented the project VALUES (Value Chain Leaders Unique Experience Support), which focuses on the implementation of CSR policies by three leading companies as a model for other Armenian companies.


Over 60 private entrepreneurs from different regions of Armenia participated to the training. Project stakeholders were introduced to CSR tools that had been developed in the pilot phase.
