The Dutch horticulture sector reflects a dynamic and pioneering entrepreneurship

"The Dutch horticulture sector reflects a dynamic and pioneering entrepreneurship. This is absolutely evident in the agricultural export figures of our country in 2017. Together, we have achieved a record sum of nearly 92 billion euro! The Dutch horticulture sector plays a prominent role in this. More and more horticulture businesses work according to the principle of Het Nieuwe Telen (literally: a new way of cultivating). This is a principle that focuses on sustainable use of energy, water and crop protection. This can result in saving energy of 35 to 50%. In Westland, all the links in the chain collaborate in order to become the first climate-neutral region in the Netherlands by 2030. This is a goal that we look forward to realising."
