Agriculture & Food
Leading the Way
Worldwide, Dutch agriculture has the lowest impact on the environment for climate and biodiversity per kilogram of food. However, we are not stopping there and further improvement is not only necessary, it is possible. Additional attention is being paid to developing climate neutral, sustainable and robust production systems, where circularity and reuse of waste and by-products is important. Plus, greater consideration has been realized for encouraging animal welfare.
As the second largest exporter of food in the world, with over 25% of the world’s largest food and beverages producers having sites or R&D activities here, the Netherlands plays a crucial role in delivering global progress.
