On 11 and 12 December, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the largest AgriTech fairs in The Netherlands; AgriFoodTech 2019 in Den Bosch.

Jointly organized by the Dutch Government, research universities and AgriTech company association, AgriFoodTech will connect the top sectors “High Tech Systems & Materials” with “Agri & Food and Horticulture & Materials” with the aim of coming together to develop new technological solutions for Agri & Food. The latest high tech and IT innovations, products, services and (research) projects are presented both on the exhibition floor and in the congress.

Where the first day will focus on investors and corporate partners, this fair will connect you with the wider Dutch AgriTech ecosystem. For more information about this event, please take a look at https://agrifoodtech.nl/home-en/

About the Netherlands; an AgriFood Powerhouse

Second only to the U.S. for agri/food exports worldwide, the Netherlands boasts more than 5,300  companies in this key sector — from farm to fork. In fact, 12 of the world’s largest agri/food companies have major production or R&D sites in Holland, including Cargill, Heinz, Monsanto, Unilever, Mead Johnson, ConAgra, Mars and many more.

Fueled by world-class research institutes for food innovation, medical universities and numerous public-private partnerships between science, industry and government, the Netherlands has the 2nd highest private R&D investment in agri/food in Europe.

The Netherlands, long Europe’s trading crossroads, is a smart choice to locate a pan- European operation — whether it’s a European headquarters, a shared services center, a customer care center, a distribution and logistics operation, or an R&D facility.
