Ensuring enough supply of safe, healthy and delicious food in our cities takes collaboration across sectors and borders. The Netherlands is keen to work together with countries around the world to achieve food security.
Our agrifood and horticulture sectors and food processing industry work closely with the government and research institutes to satisfy people’s dietary and nutritional needs. As well as preparing our food system for the future. Making it more sustainable and resilient. For example, by making the shift from animal-based products to alternative, plant-based proteins.
Find out how the Netherlands is working together with other countries to increase the supply of safe, healthy and tasty food:
In Dubai, Armela Farms uses Dutch technology to grow kale and lettuce in the most challenging climatological and geographical circumstances.
In Beijing, Wageningen-educated entrepreneur Xu Dan runs HortiPolaris. Cultivating the knowledge he gained in the Netherlands, Xu provides Beijing’s population with healthy and fresh food.
And in Nigeria, a group of Dutch companies under the banner of Seeds4Change supports the local horticulture sector to become self-sufficient.
