During the year we are proud to be the host to various (trade) delegations. Ambassadors en business delegation often come to see for themselves why the Dutch are playing such a large international role in the agribusiness.  We receive visitors at our office, show them our VR film about ” the journey of the potato” {link} and then go outside, visiting the participants of the cluster. Our stakeholders show how high-quality knowledge, good logistics, years of experience and off course the soil, the former seabed, ensure that we are at the top of the worldwide potato and onion market.
