Dutch greenhouse company Delta and the municipality of Westland in South Holland have signed a partnership agreement. The aim is to jointly focus on regions and countries where there are many opportunities for the Dutch greenhouse horticulture sector.
According to Joep van den Bosch of the Dutch greenhouse company Delta, the annual turnover of the hotel sector is between 20 and 25 billion euros. “And the demand for healthy, fresh, organic, locally grown food continues to skyrocket around the world. Collaboration between government, business and applied science is essential to addressing this food challenge.”
More than twenty companies and institutions are already partners with the Dutch greenhouse company Delta, most of which have roots in Westland. “Therefore, as the municipality of Westland, we see the Dutch greenhouse company Delta as a natural partner. We also see that close cooperation is important to bring Dutch greenhouse horticulture as a cluster to the global market,” explains Mayor Bouquet Ahrendts during the signing of the agreement.
Dutch greenhouse company Delta’s ultimate goal is to co-create a horticultural ecosystem. Such a system consists of science, business, education and government.
