Future-proof agriculture

in the Netherlands


The Dutch agriculture and horticulture is a dynamic and successful sector, which has been in full swing for generations. It is a sector that is indispensable for the quality of life and provides a positive contribution to our society. Entrepreneurs are constantly responding to changes in the market, new government policies, technological developments and changing social views. Innovative solutions are the common thread running through the sector. This is one of the reasons why agriculture and horticulture make such an important contribution to the Dutch economy. We support entrepreneurs who face the challenges of our time and are ready to seize the opportunities. We guide them in the transition to a future-proof agriculture and horticulture. It is our ambition to grow our client portfolio in this sector and to make it more sustainable.

Accelerating transitions

With our knowledge and networks, we contribute positively to the transitions taking place in the agriculture and horticulture: demand-driven food chains, circular agriculture, regional approach for cross-farm problems, climate transition, precision agriculture and horticulture and strengthening entrepreneurship.
