Eric Egberts, CEO Dutch Greenhouse Delta: “The participation of these four companies creates a broader delegation of horticultural life in our foundation. Concrete plans for how the business community will jointly market Dutch horticulture as a brand internationally will increasingly take shape. We are already working on a project in Jiashan, China for the construction of the Sino-Dutch High-Tech Agriculture Park. Additionally, in Uttar Pradesh, India a letter of intent has been signed for the development of a horticulture expertise center.”
Jelmer Huizing (Export Manager Codema): “Codema is happy to participate in this great initiative. Our country is seen worldwide as a specialist in the field of climate and water management in horticulture. As a result of the knowledge exchange and collaboration between our companies, we believe the sector is able to innovate even faster than it already does. When we join forces, we are able to have a real impact on the global challenges in the area of food, energy and water.”
Twenty companies are now partners of the Dutch Greenhouse Delta Foundation. There is strategic cooperation with the two branch organizations, AVAG and LTO Glaskracht, which together represent more than a hundred companies in greenhouse horticulture.
