We are proud to be the host to various (trade) delegations during the year. Ambassadors en business delegations visit us to see why the Netherlands plays such a significant international role in agribusiness. We receive visitors at our office and show them our VR film about ” the journey of the potato”. After that, we visit the fields and cluster participants. Our stakeholders show how high-quality knowledge, good logistics, years of experience, and of course the soil, which was the former seabed, ensure that we are at the top of the worldwide potato and onion market.
