17 Dutch companies active in the pig business have signed a strategic partnership agreement.
Hereby they have agreed to combine their strengths and knowledge in international pig production. For this purpose, they created a brand new global platform: Dutch Agribusiness Worldwide.
This global platform was created to make Dutch knowledge and innovativeness in all aspects of the pig production chain available to the global market.
Two of the founders of this initiative are Mark Schippers, CEO of the Schippers Group, and Gudo Klein Gebbink, Managing Director EMEA of Royal Agrifirm Group. “Looking at all the great innovations in the Dutch pig industry that are in full swing and the ones that are coming up, we felt we could do more to share this knowledge with others. By joining forces with all of these partners, we have more than 300 years of experience to serve international partners who want to get their business ready for future challenges.”
Facilitator and coordinator Judith Verbruggen comments: “As coordinator and objective partner, I am here to connect interested companies with the partners of Dutch Agribusiness Worldwide. I’m happy with the launch of this platform, and look forward to contribute and supporting all partners in this endeavour.”
The 17 partners participating in this platform were selected based on three criteria: being globally active, being innovative, and working sustainably. In the near future, the platform will expand its reach by opening an experience center to bring Dutch innovation and technology faster to all interested parties.
