By joining forces, we can meet global challenges of sustainable food production. With our partners worldwide we have the ambition to co-create a sustainable future. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency will talk about the major growth regions for our agricultural and horticultural sector: North America, the Asian region and the Gulfregion. Sustainability, innovation and international cooperation are focus points. The horticultural sector must unite to achieve the global ambitions, formulated in the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.
Our panel of international horticultural experts discusses the challenges they face in their region in the area of achieving the SDG’s. AppHarvest, Pure Harvest Smart Farms and FoodVentures are three best practice cases in their region and they will elaborate on their vision and strategy.
With Andrew Walker (Moderator), Dirk Aleven, Drs. Annette Wijering (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland/Netherlands Enterprise Agency), Matthew Gosnell (AppHarvest), Sky Kurtz (Pure Harvest Smart Farms).
