Food & Agriculture

The Netherlands is among the world’s top food production and processing countries, as well as the second largest exporter of agriculturally-produced food. The Food & Agriculture sector is one of the strongest industries of our country. It is vital to the Dutch economy and employment. Sustainable food production and technological innovations are at the core of the Dutch ambition to provide adequate, safe and healthy food. It is our goal to prevent future food shortages as well as avoid the deterioration of our environment.
