    Programme Description

    Delicious tomatoes on the vine, healthy nutritious salads, a rich variety of colourful flowers and plants, new sustainable ways of poultry and meat production, ... On a daily basis, the innovative and diverse agribusiness region between the river Rhine and Maas in the Netherlands and Germany is busy pleasing the growing demands of the dynamic market in Europe and abroad.

    To find all these food and flower products in today´s supermarkets is regarded as absolutely normal. But how do they find their way to the shopping baskets of the consumers? How are they produced, packed, traded, transported and sold? Who `develops´ new food concepts? And, very important, how is it guaranteed that everything is good and healthy and `value for money´? All these questions and many more, have to be answered by professionals in the world of food & flowers.

    The market

    The `world´ of food & flowers covers all the primary production of fresh food in all thinkable domains: from meat over dairy, mushrooms and nuts to all kinds of fruits and vegetables. The `flower´ part is endless: flowers, plants, trees, garden products, etc. Besides production also the first steps of processing of the primary products are part of our world of food & flowers. But don´t forget the entire surrounding environment of suppliers, consultants, and logistical service providers etc., who form an integral part in this dynamic field of business. Yes, it deals with products and services, but bottom-line it always concerns people. People who see it as their challenge to fulfil the true needs of the consumers all around the globe: healthy and safe food and a nice and personal decorated `living space´.
